Happy to report that my book has a cover and ISBN!


This book illuminates how science fiction studies can support diversity, equity, and inclusion in science and engineering. Shortly before science fiction got its name, a new paradigm connected whiteness and masculinity to the advancement of civilization. In order to show how science fiction authors supported the social construction of these gender and racial norms – and also challenged them – this study analyzes the impact of three major editors and the authors in their orbits: Hugo Gernsback; John W. Campbell, Jr.; and Judith Merril. Readers gain insights into fighting prejudice, the importance of the community, and ideas about how to challenge racism, sexism, and xenophobia in new creative work.
