Think Galactic is a pro-woman, pro-queer, and anti-racism group that dreams of a world without oppressive hierarchies.
Think Galactic is a reading and discussion group that rose out of the experiences of three anarchists from Chicago at Wiscon, the world’s leading feminist science fiction convention. They sought to find a way to bring intense, thoughtful, and earnest discussion of speculative fiction and politics into their regular lives. Starting with an initial discussion of Samuel Delaney’s “Aye and Gomorrah,” they recruited like-minded friends, and a reading list of interesting titles was compiled. Flyering and other networks added a variety of other individuals to the mix. The group put on Think Galacticons in 2007, 2009, and 2011, and has been going since 2002.
Every month the group gathers at Myopic Books in Chicago, with a typical turnout being 4-6 people.
