Historical Note

Joanna Russ, feminist, educator, author and literary critic was born February 22, 1937 in New York City. Encouraged by her parents, especially her mother whose love of literature she credits "as one of the things that drew her to literature with a female point of view," Russ began writing when she was five years old. She graduated from Cornell University in 1957, and received an MFA in playwriting from the Yale School of Drama in 1960. Her teaching career began at Queensborough Community College in New York; she has also taught literature and writing at Cornell and the State University of New York at Binghamton and the University of Colorado at Boulder. In1977, she joined the faculty of the University of Washington in Seattle, retiring in 1990 as a full professor.

Her short stories, novels and essays examine the limitations of late 20th century gender roles on the lives of women and posit the possibilities for women outside these constructions. Her fiction is categorized within science fiction, a genre that, over its history, devolved the constraints of the western cultural literary traditions by shaping alternative realities for humanity. The profound change that Russ and her contemporaries introduced in the 1960s and 70s is the positioning of the female protagonist as a complete individual, capable of all constructive and destructive activities, entirely outside of any relationship with the male identity of western myths. The male is no longer the absolute owner of all real activity. "These are not stories about men qua Man and women qua Woman; they are myths of human intelligence and human adaptability. They not only ignore gender roles but--at least theoretically--are not culture bound." These explorations into the speculative nature of women's reality place her work in a subsection of science fiction along with the work of Ursula Le Guin and Octavia Butler. In a 1984 interview, Russ said, "Science fiction is a natural, in a way, for any kind of radical thought. Because it is about things that have not happened and do not happen. àIt is very fruitful if you want to present the concerns of any marginal group, because you are doing it in a world where things are different."

Russ' fury at what happens in the world humans actually inhabit, what continues to happen, drives her creations. Joanna Russ has been a voice of angry, insulted women since her first short story was published in 1959. "But holy peanut butter, dear writer," James Tiptree, Jr. wrote to Russ in 1973, "do you imagine that anyone with half a functional neuron can read your work and not have his fingers smoked by the bitter, multi-layered anger in it? àIt smells and smoulders like a volcano buried so long and deadly it is just beginning to wonder if it can explode."

Russ has won many awards including a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship for 1974-75. She won the Nebula, science fiction's prestigious award, for her short story "When It Changed" and the Hugo in 1983 for Souls, a novella. She was also awarded the Pilgrim Award in 1988 for her criticism of works in the science fiction genre.

Content Description

The Joanna Russ Papers consist of fifteen boxes, twelve of correspondence and three of literary manuscripts. The correspondence is organized by the last name of the correspondent, with the earliest letters first; miscellaneous letters are filed at the beginning of each alphabetical group. Russ maintained an extensive correspondence with many U.S. and English feminist writers and theorists of the late twentieth century as well as with numbers of her former university colleagues and students and with those involved in science fiction. The basis of most of the friendships was the ongoing literary work and emerging feminist radicalism in which the correspondents were engaged in one form or another. The collection offers a view of the evolution of thought among a sizable group of women intellectuals as they attempted to conceptualize feminism and to apply feminist perceptions of power in society into the realities of their own lives. Both intellectual and personal trends present in the Western feminism of the late twentieth can be traced in this correspondence, for example the correspondence explores the difficulties of every day life and the vicissitudes of work faced by women who defined themselves as feminist in the late twentieth century North Atlantic region. These difficulties are entwined with the solace offered by long-term correspondence, a solace which her correspondents often find in their communication with Russ. Russ's loyalty to and care of her students is another theme that of the correspondence; thanks for her encouragement and advice are scattered throughout the collection. The public image of professionalism Russ and her correspondents maintained as university professors, publishers, editors and writers drops away at moments and an illuminating level of bitterness emerges, even sharper than that in public works. Fan mail, arranged alphabetically by the last name of the writer, is another opportunity Russ used to engage and instruct people whose thinking would benefit from feminist insight and, sadly often, whose manners could also use some improvement.

Often ebullient, thought provoking, rueful and instructive, the correspondence as a whole offers a complex view of a particular historical moment in the letters of women and men who were deeply involved in evolution of feminist thought and/or the possibilities of imagination in science fiction writing.

The Literary Works Series is also arranged alphabetically, by the name of the work. The collection includes manuscripts of her novels; unpublished plays; published and unpublished short stories, theoretical essays, and sketches of contemporary life.
