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 http://library.uoregon.edu/tiptreesymposium. 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.
