2016 Tiptree Symposium Videos

Last month, December 1-3, I was fortunate to attend and be a part of the 2016 Tiptree Symposium at the University of Oregon.  The symposium honored the work and legacy of Ursula K. Le Guin.  I helped organize a panel of my WGS 410/510: Feminist Science Fiction students, who reflected on and spoke about The Word for World is Forest.  I also arranged for my students to exhibit their final project research posters during the symposium.  It was a honor and a privilege to be part of the second symposium, to meet Ursula K. Le Guin for a second time, and I hope the Tiptree is held every year well into the future.
