One Monday and Tuesday this week HUMlab hosted a workshop entitled “Science Fiction Across Media: Alternative Histories, Alien Futures”.
An international workshop exploring the complex representation of natural and technological ecologies in science fiction in and across its varied media – novels, short stories, films, animation, comic books, computer games.
A broad range of topics were discussed by a fascinating group of people (really I know next to nothing about the theory behind science fiction, but I learned a lot as an observer at this event). The Twitter stream for the workshop is here. The workshop was organized by Finn Arne Jørgensen, who managed to put together an amazing event.
In the above images (from the top going from left to right) you can see a shot of the audience, then former HUMlab postdoc Fellow Lisa Swanstrom, now of Florida Atlantic University, delivering the keynote for the workshop (soon to be streamed online), then Joe Trotta, University of Gothenburg, followed by Dolly Jørgensen, Umeå University and then Tony Thorström, Uppsala University. Our very own Finn Arne Jørgensen is next and finally another audience shot.
Thanks to all the participants. A wonderful couple of days.
