Speaker - Siobhan Carroll
Siobhan Carroll is an Associate Professor of English at the University of Delaware, where she studies the relationship between the history of exploration and SF. A writer as well as a critic of speculative fiction, she contributes genre-blurring stories to magazines like Beneath Ceaseless Skies and Lightspeed. Her non-fiction book, An Empire of Air and Water: Uncolonizable Space in the British Imagination, was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2015. This proto-history of science fiction examines the impact of inventions like the air balloon on writers like Mary Shelley, and argues that the Romantic period anticipated many of our concerns regarding technological change, climate change, and globalization.
