April 19, 2017 – Zac Zimmer, “Conquest, Contact, and Cosmovision: SF Rewritings of the Conquest of the Americas”
Zac Zimmer’s current project reads original narratives of the conquest of the Americas and the philosophical debates it engendered with and against recent aesthetic attempts to reimagine that historical moment in marginal genres, especially alternative history and first contact science fiction, creating a point of contact between the contemporary world and the hemispheric American colonial encounter.
Zac Zimmer is Assistant Professor of Literature and LALS at UCSC.
