About the Author

Sami Schalk is Assistant Professor of Gender and Women's Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.


"It is now time to bring focus and attention to the works of Black women speculative writers and their subjects. Bodyminds Reimagined becomes the discovery that celebrates these writers and subjects, while challenging the status quo within speculative fiction and (dis)ability studies, and moves them from marginalized objects to realist representations." -- Grace Gipson * Black Perspectives *
"Sami Schalk's book is an important bridge between Black women's science fiction and disability theorizing. Her work requires a reconceptualization of the boundaries of disability studies and African American literature as well." -- Moya Bailey * Feminist Formations *
"Bodyminds Reimagined boldly demonstrates the capacity of black speculation and experimentation to generate world-building visions that are inclusive and sustainable for multiply marginalized black subjects." -- Petal Samuel * Public Books *
"Bodyminds Reimagined is a compelling critical study . . . simultaneously accessible and complex, exhaustively sourced and fresh in its analysis. . . . Students, scholars, and fans of speculative fiction will be well served to familiarize themselves with this book." -- Angela Rovak * Women's Studies *
