Tuesday, 26 March – FEMCRITICON
Thursday, 28 March – FEMCRITICON

The theme is "Media Ecologies." Our class' expertise is in "Design Fiction." 
Explore what these mean as you consider what to do. 
=Johnson is your best resource for our approach to media ecologies, so be sure you are caught up with having read the whole book. Merrick is also all about media ecologies with a feminist SF focus.
=When you think of design fiction, think of all the ways we have been approaching and thinking and talking about our readings, and the interactions among the extraterrestrial relativities of multiple ways of exploring "sf." Look at the website carefully, as well as Helmreich's essay. Both are your best resource for understanding the multiple realities of designing fictions. Fictions = makings.
=How does the NearFuture Laboratory share thinking? How would you do this same kind of analysis yourself? (Some clues are in the Media tab of the website too.)

Some artifacts of the first day of FemCritiCon!

A great roundtable discussion on the second day of FemCritiCon!

Preparing and thinking for Whileaway next!
