In recent years there has been increased attention to conversations concerning consent, sexual violence, and rape. The stories of survivors have been an important tool for informing the public about these issues and providing healing. First-hand nonfiction accounts of sexual violence like A Woman in Berlin, Know My Name, and Willow Weep for Me have helped to destigmatize conversations about rape and sexual assault and problematized mainstream understandings of these concepts. Novels like The Handmaid’s Tale have also been able to question what sex and pleasure could look like within a rape culture.

If one were to judge the genre of science fiction by the blockbuster films it has produced, one would think it is a hypermasculine, imperialist, anti-feminist genre. However, non-white, non-male people have shaped, defined, and sustained the genre throughout its existence as authors, editors, and fans. The modern founder of the genre was arguably Mary Shelley who initially published anonymously. However, authors like Ursula Le Guin and Octavia Butler are now synonymous with literary sci-fi. Furthermore, some of the most compelling and successful contemporary writers of science fiction are women of color.

Floating Islands; or, Saikaku's Eighteenth Century

Following the various calls for a more global perspective on the eighteenth century at ASECS 2021, this panel seeks papers on the work of Japanese author Ihara Saikaku (1642-1693). In her 2016 book, The Age of Silver, Ning Ma discusses Saikaku as the most significant representative figure of the “stories of the floating world” that, she argues, should be seen as an emergence of realist fiction. A bestseller in 17th and 18th century Japan, Saikaku’s work fell into obscurity until a revival of interest in the late 19th century, when he became known as “Japan’s realist”.

In the wake of COVID, some workers have been deemed essential, forced to put their lives at risk to keep the market moving or care for those with the means to stay off the frontlines. While these jobs may be crucial, those who perform them are frequently treated as exchangeable.Yet as workers have become interchangeable, a fantastical contrast has emerged in the form of the non-fungible token (NFT): at the same time that stable employment and livable wages have been cut in the interest of profit, digital creations become irreplaceable tokens of payment. The catastrophic impact of the pandemic shows which systems of exchange are malleable or fluid and which remain brittle or stagnant.
