Join us for this Connecting the Curious session beginning Tuesday, November 29, for an examination of the role of science fiction literature in both print and digital mediums.

Hilary Strang, deputy director of the Master of Arts Program in the Humanities and a lecturer in the Department of English, will lead a conversation on the history and implications of this long-standing genre. Participants will come away with an understanding of sci-fi as cognitive work that allows for an expansive view of human difference, often mediated through spectacular discoveries or technological innovations.

Be prepared to

  • watch live lectures with leading faculty members;
  • propose and vote on questions to guide the conversation;
  • participate in discussions with fellow alumni; and
  • connect with your peers across graduation years, schools, and divisions on shared interests.
