Intro to Steampunk Exhibit

Earlier this school year, I contributed an introductory essay for “Worlds of Steampunk: Fiction, Art, Fashion, and Culture,” a multimedia exhibit at UC Davis’s Shields Library.  Research librarians Roberto C. Delgadillo and Marcia Meister have created an invaluable resource for anyone teaching steampunk or discovering it for the first time.

My essay is called “Steampunk: Assembly Required, Disassembly Encouraged.” It’s about 1/3 of the way down on the exhibit’s introductory page.

I taught Cherie Priest’s Boneshaker last week in my Nostalgia and Desiderium in the Novel class.  I’ll write up more about that experience soon.  Until then, I thought it worthwhile to include a link to the essay, where I contrast Boneshaker with Tim Powers’s The Anubis Gates.
