Current SLIM student, Rachel Fellman, is having a very busy summer:
She had an article published – http://www.inthelibrarywiththeleadpipe.org/2018/life-now/
“Life-now: James Tiptree, Joanna Russ, and the Queer Meaning of Archives.”
As the Assistant Archivist at the Charles M. Schulz Museum in California, she is presenting at the annual Society of American Archivists Conference in Washington, D.C., in August. She is one of the three “exceptional emerging professionals”, and the topic of her talk will be based on the article above – “Life-now: James Tiptree, Joanna Russ, and the Queer Meaning of Archives.”
She is also presenting two sessions at the 2018 Comic-Con Conventions. One talk is part of a panel, “Peanuts Family Album”; and the other is “Snoopy Space Traveler: The History and Future of Snoopy and NASA.”
