The Big Idea is excited to host Dr. Sami Schalk for a discussion of her new book, Bodyminds Reimagined: (Dis)ability, Race, and Gender in Black Women's Speculative Fiction!

«In Bodyminds Reimagined Sami Schalk traces how black women's speculative fiction complicates the understanding of bodyminds—the intertwinement of the mental and the physical—in the context of race, gender, and (dis)ability. Bridging black feminist theory with disability studies, Schalk demonstrates that this genre's political potential lies in the authors' creation of bodyminds that transcend reality's limitations. […] Outlining (dis)ability's centrality to speculative fiction, Schalk shows how these works open new social possibilities while changing conceptualizations of identity and oppression through nonrealist contexts.»

Sami Schalk is Assistant Professor of Gender and Women's Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Find her on Twitter @DrSamiSchalk.
