    Gendering Time, Timing Gender: The Deconstruction of Gender in Time Travel Fiction is an investigation into how time travel has been used to deconstruct gender and sex in speculative fiction.



    Specifically, it focuses on how the dismantling of the past/future binary is utilised in the dismantling of the male/female gender binary in four different time travel narratives: Orlando by Virginia Woolf, ‘All You Zombies’ by Robert A. Heinlein, and The Unintentional Time Traveler by Everett Maroon.



    Combining queer theory with literary theory, the book explores what the deconstruction of binary gender means and where it leads.
