The ‘science’ in Science Fiction
Tuesday 7 April 7.00pm-8.30pm
Speaker: Prof Mark Brake and Rev Neil Hook
Since its emergence in the 17th century science fiction has been a sustained, coherent and subversive check on the promises and pitfalls of science. In turn, invention and discovery have forced writers to confront the nature and limits of reality. This lecture explores how this fascinating symbiosis shapes what we see and do and how we dream of the future.
