Leah Faye Norris is a PhD candidate at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She specializes in transatlantic modernism, feminist science fiction, and materialist theories of the posthuman. Leah’s research asks how inherited narratives, technologies, and environments condition cultural perspectives on what is possible for whom. She focuses on 20th and 21st century discourses from Surrealism to Afrofuturism which reconfigure the power dynamics of the present and embrace alien futures.
