Sold Out: BUILDING WORLDS WITH SPECULATIVE AND SCIENCE FICTION
Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at 3:00pm to 4:00pmVirtual Event
***Registration for this activity is now closed***
Reading short works of speculative and science fiction, especially by authors writing from outside the US, participants in this activity will consider how worlds are imagined and textually rendered. Particular emphasis will be placed on thinking about how this fiction might help us remake our own worlds in the face of planetary climate change and persisting structural inequalities on bases of race, ethnicity, class, caste, gender, and sexuality.
This 4-session virtual activity will meet on the four Wednesdays in January (5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th) from 3:00-4:00pm EDT. It will be facilitated by History, Anthropology, & STS PhD students Hina Walajahi and Zach La Rock. Participants will receive electronic copies of all readings in advance. Those who register for the activity may attend individual sessions but are warmly invited to all of them.
Sponsored by the Program in Science, Technology, and Society and the Department of Anthropology.
Limited enrollment: advance sign up required, sign-up deadline is 03 January 2022.
