James Tiptree, Jr. Symposium – Part 2

The University of Oregon Libraries celebrates the acquisition of the James Tiptree, Jr. (Alice B. Sheldon) literary papers, a gift of Jeff Smith.

James Tiptree, Jr. was the pen name of Alice Sheldon, an award-winning feminist author of science fiction. Tiptree’s published stories include “The Last Flight of Doctor Ain, ” “Houston, Houston, Do you Read?”, “The Women Men Don’t See,” “Her Smoke Rose up Forever,” The Girl Who was Plugged In,” “Love is the Plan, the Plan is Death,” among many others; and two novels, Up the Walls of the World (1978) and Brightness Falls from the Air. The acquisition of the Tiptree Papers enriches Special Collections and University Archives’ growing collection of feminist science fiction manuscript collections, which include the Ursula K. Le Guin Papers, the Joanna Russ Papers, the Sally Miller Gearhart Papers, and the Suzette Haden Elgin Papers.

Part 2:

  • Reading of selected Tiptree correspondence, moderated by Carol Stabile.
  • “The Women that Men Don’t See,” introduced by Karen Joy Fowler.
