The Department of English is proud to announce second year student Samanda Robinson has been highlighted for her work on her Intersession course, ” Black Science Fiction and Social Justice.”
“History archives can be an exclusionary place for people of color,” Robinson says. “Particularly for enslaved black women, whose stories were often told through the white male gaze in the diaries of slave catchers or the people who enslaved them. Science fiction offers authors a chance to create an alternative representation—a counter-narrative.”
