“In effect, we live in a legal, social, and institutional world where the only relations possible are extremely few, extremely simplified, and extremely poor. There is, of course, the relation of marriage, and the relations of family, but how many other relations should exist…!” -Michel Foucault

Escapology: Feeling the Art of Speculative Fiction

February 8, Monday
12:30 to 1:45 PM

Katie Brewer Ball, Doctoral Candidate, Performance Studies, NYU

The “more speculative genres,” as Junot Diaz calls them, such as science fiction and fantasy continue to enthusiastically capture the attention and interest of the American public. What precisely, is the draw that such stories hold for mass consumers, and more specifically why do they become rallying points for the more marginal publics of queers and people of color? As part of her dissertation project on the art of escapology, Katie Brewer Ball focuses on the novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao to explore the affective experiences and connections made through an attachment to speculative fiction.

41-51 East 11th Street, Room 709
between University Place and Broadway
(wheelchair access at 85-87 University Place, between 11th and 12th Streets)
