Michael Dale Stokes is a scholar whose work engages with the complex entanglements of disability narratives, science fiction/horror, critical race, and contemporary culture. He is a PhD student at Michigan State University and co-founder of the HIVES Research Workshop and Speaker Series. His work focuses on the relationships of disabled characters in science fiction/horror literature and film from the 1900s to the present with race, queerness, and sexuality. He is particularly interested in how these narratives are (dis)figured as they are remade, rebooted, and rehashed in contemporary literature, film, and television. Michael’s work has been delivered in the Centre for Cultural and Disability Studies’ Disability and Emotion lecture series and published in The Museum of Science Fiction’s Journal of Science Fiction and The Journal of Analogue Game Studies.

Exhausted Futures: Science Fiction and the Limits of Political Imagination in Contemporary Spain (in preparation).
Strange Sovereignties: Posthumanism and Political Communities in Argentine, Cuban, and Mexican Science Fiction, 1976-2018 (in preparation)

My main academic interests are Spanish-speaking science fiction in all media (literature, film, TV, and comic books), and the intersection of modernity and the sacred. I am currently working on two book projects. One explores how contemporary Spanish science fiction maps out the exhaustion of the political imagination in contemporary Spain and tries to envision possible ways to break out of this impasse. The other monograph looks into the ways in which modern and contemporary Argentine, Cuban, and Mexican science fiction reimagines the concept of sovereignty. I am also coediting a volume on materiality and the cultures of death in contemporary Spain.
