Here’s more info on the Tiptree symposium at the University of Oregon, December 4-5, 2015. It’s going to be a remarkable group of people, including the writers Ursula K. Le Guin, Suzy McKee Charnas, David Gerrold, and Karen Joy Fowler; my editor for the Tiptree book, Gordon Van Gelder; Alice Sheldon’s good friend and the executor of her estate, Jeffrey D. Smith; Jacob Weisman, who publishes Tiptree at Tachyon Publications; members of the Motherboard of the James Tiptree, Jr., Award; and many more. You can find more information at The plan is not to hold an academic conference but to celebrate Alice Sheldon’s life and work. I’m planning to speak about the Tiptree-Russ-Le Guin correspondence, which will give me a chance to read some of my favorite bits. I’m looking forward to it.
