By Tuesday August 27 (our first official day of class, though we won’t meet until Thursday 29), make an introductory post to our course site.
Include the following information:
- Some information about yourself. This might be the classic name/major/pronouns, but most of you probably know each other already and I’ll be finding out that stuff via the confidential questionnaire, so feel free to be creative. For example, some information about me (Dr Lothian) is that I’ve attended the feminist science fiction convention WisCon 11 times since 2008.
- What social justice means to you: for example, which issues and causes are important to you and why.
- What speculative fiction means to you – are you a fan? If so, of what? If not, what are you interested in learning more about?
Aim to write around 300 words.
