Dreams our stuff is made of

small plug for an event which could steal the title (though not content) from Tom Disch’s look back at science fiction – as I just did above. Not sure why they picked on Asimov, but should be an interesting discussion. (Psychohistory? Nostradamus with knobs on)

Future visions

Science fiction has inspired generations of scientists and engineers. But have science fiction writers such as Isaac Asimov really influenced the science and technology around us? Come along as we look at how science fiction can become science fact.

Speakers

Roger Luckhurst, School of English and Humanities, Birkbeck College,

Jenny Rohn, founder lablit.com and research scientist

Jon Turney, writer and critic of both popular science and science fiction books

Chris Welch, Principal Lecturer in Astronautics, Kingston University
