The Politics of the Other: New Visionary Fiction

Mon, April 24, 2023 @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Free – $90
Book covers for Left Hand of Darkness, Three-Body Problem, and Children of Time

The Science and Visionary Fiction Reading Group spring season takes on three of the most richly inventive and deeply challenging novels of our time.

  • Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness
  • Cixin Liu, Three-Body Problem
  • Adrian Tchaikovsky, Children of Time

All three create and adapt new worlds to explore themes of existential species and environmental survival. All three awaken us to the political stakes of communication and conflict across social systems. And finally, all three invite us to perceive otherness deeply and act strategically.

Our readings and discussion do not depend on a science fiction background–just the desire we all share to envision the and how to get there.
