Lecture: Alien Culture, and Others

In conjunction with the exhibition Shezad Dawood: Towards the Possible Film


The encounter with difference has always been at the heart of science fiction, even if the genre has not always engaged with otherness wisely or well. Dr Mark Bould will draw on classic and contemporary sci-fi texts, films and programmes, as well as artists such as Kiluanji Kia Henda and the Black Kirby Project, to discuss how sci-fi explores identity and questions of race.
