Prompt #1: What does Ink have to do with science and/or speculative fiction? What are the science fictional/ speculative elements of the text? And what is their significance within the novel? Thinking back further, how might Ink be an example of what Walidah Imarisha describes as “visionary fiction”?
Prompt #2: Relate Ink to one of the texts we have read this semester. What kinds of connections do you see between Ink and this other text? Are there related themes or overarching issues or concerns? Do you see similarities between some of the characters in Ink and a figure from another reading? How and why?
