Sweconpoddar 41 – Feminist sf in the 70s and today

41 - feminist sf 70s

The feminist sf of today is certainly different from that written by Joanna Russ and her coevals. Are there any new trends? How are recent works received and criticized? Which authors, and which works, were dominant in the 70’s and in the last decade? To what extent do they reflect the politics of their time?

Participants: Carolyn Ives Gilman, Anna Bark Persson, John-Henri Holmberg, Suzanne van Rooyen, Johan Jönsson (M).

Sweconpoddar 40 – Reading Robert A. Heinlein today

40 - Heinlein

Robert A. Heinlein is one of the important authors who shaped science fiction. This is a
conversation about reading and re-reading Heinlein in 2016. Sometimes you hear
claims that he wrote anti-feminist, racist books, promoting an extreme right-wing political
view. In what ways are these accusations true and false? If you’ve never read Heinlein
but want to educate yourself, where is the best place to start?

Participants: John-Henri Holmberg and Jessica Elgenstierna (M).

Sweconpoddar 39 – Jules Verne-Magasinet – vad har det betytt för sf och fandom i Sverige?

39 - jules verne magasinet

Denna panel spelades in på Swecon 2016 – Fantastika i Stockholm.

Jules Verne-magasinet, JVM, är det svenska sf-magasin som funnits längst. Den första versionen gavs ut 1940-1967 och innehöll framför allt äventyrs-sf blandat med serier och andra äventyr. 1969-1971 gavs en ny version ut av Bertil Falk, och från 1972 till 2010 var Sam J. Lundwall redaktör. JVM har förutom noveller också innehållit fandomspalt, recensioner och artiklar. JVM har ofta funnits på bibliotek och kan därmed ha påverkat synen på sf i Sverige.
