Books Description :
Review “Lothian's central concept of old futures—the cast-off remains of speculations past—is both entertaining fodder and theoretically rich terrain for making queer theory new again. There’s something wonderfully bold about the book’s willingness to let ‘the future’ become concrete by turning to its many past versions, bringing them to light as commentary on where we are, and are not, now.”-Elizabeth Freeman,author of Time Binds: Queer Temporalities, Queer Histories“Amassing an impressive and eclectic archive of utopian and dystopian writings under the fantastic heading of “Old Futures,” Alexis Lothian offers the most detailed and theoretically sophisticated account of Queer, Black, and feminist speculative fictions to date. Offering an array of futures, non-futures, un-futures, and no futures, this book shows us the precarious foundations upon which our own sense of the present sits. Lothian’s book is a marvel and will, I promise, never get old.”-Jack Halberstam,author of In A Queer Time and Place'Lothian's insistence that many speculative texts contain both liberating queer images and unsettling normative messages is one of the strongest aspects of Old Futures . . . a book that is filled with unexpected yet crucial connections.'-Melanie E.S.
