Sarah Shin, Mathias Zeiske (eds.), Carrier Bag Fiction

What if humanity’s primary inventions were not the Hero’s spear but rather a basket of wild oats, a medicine bundle, a story. Ursula K. Le Guin’s 1986 essay The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction presents a feminist story of technology that centres on the collective sustenance of life, and reimagines the carrier bag as a tool for telling strangely realistic fictions. New writings and images respond to Le Guin’s narrative practice of worldmaking through gathering and holding. With contributions by Sophia Al-Maria, Season Butler, Federico Campagna, Dorothee Elmiger, Laurel Halo, Ursula K. Le Guin, Taylor Le Melle, Enis Maci, Nisha Ramayya, Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Sin Wai Kin fka Victoria Sin, Himali Singh Soin, Jenna Sutela and Anna Tsing
