We are delighted to announce that Kij Johnson will be a plenary speaker at the 2016 Storytelling and Technology Conference (dates TBC). We look forward to welcoming her back to Oxford. She was last here in 2013 to deliver the inaugural Tolkien Lecture on Fantasy Literature at Pembroke College.

Kij focuses on writing experimental and speculative fiction. She is a three-time winner of the Nebula Award, and has won the Hugo, World Fantasy, Theodore Sturgeon, and Crawford Awards for her speculative fiction. Her short-story collection, At the Mouth of the River of Bees, was published by Small Beer Press in 2012, who will be publishing her next novel, The River Bank, in late 2016. She also has two novels, The Fox Woman, and Fudoki, published by Tor Books. Prior to her academic career as Assistant Professor of Fiction at Kanas University, she worked in New York publishing, comic books, role-playing and trading-card games, and in tech firms.
