R "Baker" Baker
R Baker is an English PhD student at the University of California, Santa Barbara. They are broadly interested in cultural constructions of scientific discourses – including science fiction – with a focus on space travel/colonization, speculative world building, and the alien. Their work is situated at the intersections of Feminist Science and Technology Studies, Environmental Humanities, and Critical Infrastructure Studies, with an emphasis on decolonial politics, marginal voices, and the biological/technological turn in our cultural understanding of the human.
Baker’s work is currently centered on popular and science fictional representations of space travel, colonization, and exploration spanning from early 20th century speculative science fiction to futurologist projections into and beyond the current era.
