<h4>About the Concept</h4>

+ Speculative Fiction is a practice that mobilizes creative powers to think possible alternative. "What if?" can be considered as the starting point of the fiction. SF is an umbrella genre that includes science fiction, Alternate history, horror, and has a many practioners questioning genre issues. </section>

- “an individual’s (or group’s) ability to make effective choices and to transform those choices into desired outcomes”
+ “In writing “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Atwood was scrupulous about including nothing that did not have a historical antecedent or a modern point of comparison. (She prefers that her future-fantasy books be labelled “speculative fiction” rather than “science fiction.” “Not because I don’t like Martians . . . they just don’t fall within my skill set,” she wrote in the introduction to “In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination,” an essay collection that she published in 2011.)”
-The difficulty to qualify agency for feminists is that this essential notion happens in a patriarchal envoronment that feminist want to detach from; therefore it becomes difficult to define agency by the same time bringing in view and not refering to the patriarchal rules of of society
+Speculative Fiction is an umbrella term that encompass many areas of fiction, but has the important quality to envision its grounding on a transformatio of existing context to propose a transformative narrative.
-Agency is a intertweened with different realities contexts and personnas characterising from there on the capacity to act upon something differenciating itself from Power and often poses itself in a relation of resistance to it.
-Karen Barad stresses the non-human aspect of agency; insisting that agency is understood as 'an enactment.' "Agential intra-actions are causal enactments." (2007, p. 176)
-Everyone accesses different type of agencies, while one's capacity to understand its own agency is always in transformation, agencies work well when combined in a perspective of solidarity.
-Distributed and shared technologies value differential sets of agency and set grounds for a capacity to characterise different set of agency in different commuities.
- "Agency is 'doing' or 'being' in its intra-activity. It is the enactment of iterative changes to particular practices – interative reconfigurings of topological manifolds of spacetimematter relations – through the dynamics of intra-activity." (p. 178). Like Braidotti, Barad's position also argues that in and through the entanglements of matter, agency also refers us to the "possibilities for worldly re-configurings" (Barad, 2012, p. 55).
+Speculative Fiction is intertweened with different realities contexts and personnas however it by transforming existing elements it allows the immagination of a completely tranformed world and imaginaries. Speculative Fiction has bee a fertile terrain to envision different gender distributions in society, including characters who change gender unexpetely, wear 2 genders and/or a third one, and many other manipulations, those experiemnts are fertile in proposing new scenarios for change.
+There are many discussions about the necessity of a classification such as speculative fiction, and Margaret Atwood's affirmations: " Atwood's claim that speculative fiction is the antithesis of those cheesy, escapist fantasies about talking squids in outer space." certainly did not help the conversation, however the oposite might be true as some serious scientific litterature proposes that <a href = "https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/octopus-aliens-scientists-theory-meteors-space-earth-cambrian-explosion-a8358631.html"> maybe octopuses are alien species brought to us from out of space by meteors.</a>

- Agency being both a political and a relational concept it can be activated in political terms if all its constituent are in a moving relational scheme of discreet materials.
-<section> Tim Ingold argues: "things are active not because they are imbued with agency but because of ways in which they are caught up in these currents of the lifeworld. The properties of materials, then, are not fixed attributes of matter but are processual and relational. To describe these properties means telling their stories." (Ingold, 2007, p. 1)
