Rachel Watson is a Ph.D. student in media studies at the University of Colorado Boulder, studying the impact of popular and digital media on national and transnational identity formation within post-apartheid South Africa. She is a passionate advocate for science fiction as a powerful tool for theorization, and the lens of SF shapes all of her research. Past conference presentations have covered topics such as theories of singularity and manifest destiny in Westworld. In March at the SCMS Conference in Toronto, she will be presenting her research on the use of SF to depict South Africa in popular culture.
