New Column: Queer Fantasy Roots at Queer Sci Fi

Monday, August 15, 2016 - 18:01

As if I didn't have enough plates spinning in mid-air, I've started doing a monthly column at Queer Sci Fi, focusing on motifs, tropes, and echoes of queer fantasy themes in historic literature. The venue gives me a chance to branch out a bit from the women-centered research I discuss for the Lesbian Historic Motif Project. In fact, for the debut column, I've gone quite far afield from my usual work and discuss the implicit themes of shape-shifting same-sex relationships and "male" pregnancy in the Fourth Branch of the Mabinogi. I'll be interested to see what people think of that spin!
