Description

Join Juli Majer at Pollyanna 圖書館 Library for the fourth of this semester’s five reading groups. This session will study the subject of “Speculative Fiction in the Anthropocene.”

As part of her Spring 2018 N.O.P.E. fellowship with 221A, Juli Majer will host Science Fiction and the Other, a semester of readings and screenings that consider articulations of alterity — other beings, other worlds, other forms-of-life — as a speculative method for imagining an otherwise present.

Notes on Permanent Education (N.O.P.E.) is a collective research program convened by 221A Librarian Vincent Tao.
