Women’s interest in crime, and violent crime in particular, has become increasingly apparent in recent years. Women now read more crime fiction and thrillers than men, are the primary audience for a number of popular true-crime podcasts (listeners of My Favorite Murder even refer to themselves as “Murderinos”), and increasingly enter fields of study that put them in close contact with the after-effects of violent crime, making up approximately 75% of current forensic science graduates.

“Self-Translations are No Translations at All” was the title of a roundtable discussion at the 2018 NEMLA in Pittsburgh, where participants discussed both their own self-translations and those by renown self-translating authors such as Nabokov and Miłes and also spatial metaphors occurring in theories of self-translation.
This creative session would build upon that discussion and in this specific format allow participants to focus on presenting their own experiences with self-translation and expound phenomena and examples of their own writings and translations to be shared with other creative writers and/or (future) self-translators.

Science Fiction has always functioned as a literary multi-purpose vehicle in which writers are able to explore potentialities of the human condition. Even though sci-fi has been maligned by many as a poorly constructed near-juvenile literary form, scholars have discovered that sci-fi also provides a path from which one can bear witness into past practices and analyze the possibilities for the future. The focus of this roundtable is to assess the influence of American science fiction writers to discuss the topics and techniques Harlan Ellison, Phillip K.
