Episode 41 — Colonialism and Science Fiction

13 Mar

There has been some interesting discussion lately about the intersection of colonialism and science fiction.  We thought it would be a good topic to take on this month and spend a good amount of time talking about how the two intersect, what’s wrong with phrases like “colonizing space,” and examples of colonialism in science fiction (largely in the form of critique).  It’s an interesting topic and we hope you enjoy it.
