Lecture: Angels and Amazons & The First Women of Science Fiction
Pasadena Museum of History
Pasadena, CA
Share this event:

One of the persistent myths about science fiction is that women didnt publish  or were excluded from publishing  in the genre before World War II. Recent scholarship has demonstrated that this is not even remotely true. Building on a tradition of womens writing that included Margaret Cavendish (The Blazing World) and Mary Shelley (Frankenstein), the women science fictioneers of the early 20th century used revolutionary ideas to imagine worlds where women were in full control of their bodies, pushed scientific progress alongside men, and used feminine civilization to control masculine savagery.

In this presentation, CSULA professor Patrick B. Sharp will spotlight the major contributions to this tradition of womens science fiction.

Galleries open at 5:00 pm
