Hard Science Fiction With Heart with Dominica Phetteplace

Description: Hard Science Fiction is a genre of near-future science fiction that seeks to extrapolate present day science and technology into the future. This class is for those seeking to craft a more inclusive form of this genre. We can do this in two ways: by broadening our definition of what science and technology are and by thinking about the widespread effects of scientific and technological change across society.

Schedule:
Saturday, July 18, from 10:00-12:00 PM PDT
