Alyssa Collins, assistant professor at the University of South Carolina, has won the $50,000, year-long Octavia E. Butler Fellowship, given by the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino CA. “Collins’ project is titled ‘Cellular Blackness: Octavia E. Butler’s Posthuman Ontologies.’ Her project treats Butler’s Xenogenesis trilogy of novels as a central touchstone and explores Butler’s interest in genetics, evolution, and cellularity.”
The Huntington is the repository of Butler’s literary archive. For more information, see their official website.
