Wonderful but Neglected Feminist Science Fiction Classic: 'I, Vampire' by Jody Scott

Wonderful but Neglected Feminist Science Fiction Classic: 'I, Vampire' by Jody Scott | Fabulous Feminism | Scoop.it
The second book of Scott's Benaroya Chronicles (after Passing for Human), first published in 1984, is still one of the most astonishing works of science fiction ever written.
bobbygw's insight:
Rave review from Publishers Weekly: "[a] stunning piece of iconoclasm as Scott takes human society to task for its casual cruelties, meaningless obsessions, and ironic hatred of love. Most notably, Sterling's vampirism and lesbian identity work in tandem to make this an early and invaluable work of queer feminist SF; its historic nature alone is worth the price of admission. Introduction by Theodore Sturgeon."

Call for Papers for Special Issue on Feminism and (Un)Hacking | Fabulous Feminism | Scoop.it

There has been a recent growth in interest in feminist approaches to practices like hacking, tinkering, geeking and making. What started off as an interest in furthering representations of women in the technical fields of computer science and engineering, often along the lines of

liberal feminism, has now grown into social, cultural, and political analyses of gendered modes of social reproduction, expertise, and work, among others.
