>This panel seeks papers that will explore the ways writers used 
>speculative fiction to resist or reinscribe discourses and practices 
>of race, gender, and sexuality circulating at the 
>turn-of-the-century.  "Speculative fiction" is being defined broadly 
>here to include multiple genres of imaginative writing, including 
>science fiction, alternate history, horror, gothic, utopia, and 
>fantasy.  Papers that address works by writers of color, women, and 
>queer writers are invited.  However, papers that explore the writing 
>of more famous speculative writers of the time and/or papers which 
>employ more of a theoretical focus will also be welcome.
