Anastasia Klimchynskaya is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago’s Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge, where she investigates how fiction structures the ways in which (we think) we know the world, with a particular interest in the way science fiction shapes our knowledge and use of cutting-edge technologies and scientific discoveries. She received her PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 2019, where she began work on her current monograph project, which examines the social, cultural, and technoscientific forces behind science fiction’s emergence in the nineteenth century. She has presented at NeMLA, the annual City Tech Science Fiction conference, Nineteenth-Century French Studies, Science in Public, and the Philadephia Science Fiction Conference, and has been published in Social Anthropology.
