Womenatwarp.com has added a new review for José-Antonio Orosco‘s “Star Trek’s Philosophy of Peace and Justice: A Global, Anti-Racist Approach”:
This March I had the privilege of attending the first Latinx Visions conference at the University of New Mexico that brought together scholars, artists, film makers and more who engage with Latinx speculative fiction. One of the panels, “Latinx Technologies and Remediation,” featured the Star Trek franchise. Scholar Emily Rauber Rodriguez presented part of her doctoral thesis exploring Latinidad in Trek and Professor José-Antonio Orosco summarized the inspirations and intended outcomes of his 2022 Bloomsbury Academic publication, Star Trek’s Philosophy of Peace and Justice: A Global Anti-Racist Approach. As a fellow academic and Trekkie, I could not pass up the opportunity to interview Dr. Orosco further about his insights incorporating Star Trek into his scholarship and pedagogy.
