Virginia L. Conn

Virginia L. Conn is a comparative literature PhD candidate at Rutgers University whose work occurs at the intersection of comparative languages and literatures (Sinophone, Anglophone, Francophone, Germanophone, Russophone, and Esperantist literatures) and science and technology studies, particularly those aspects of STS that investigate circulations of knowledge and biopolitics. Her dissertation (“The Body Politic: Socialist Science Fiction and the Embodied State”) focuses on science fiction as a tool of nation-building in Mao-era China, Soviet Russia, and the GDR.
