Description

Science fiction is often a vehicle for social critique and satire. It features worlds made possible through technological advances. Join us for a discussion of how the technology in science fiction enables the creation of dystopian and utopian worlds. Does technology change who we are, or is it a reflection of who we are? How does science fiction reflect our feelings on technological advancement, and how does it use technology as a tool to explore the human condition?
