Monday 10th April 2017
Keynes Library, 43 Gordon Square
Join the London Science Fiction Research Community as we host a talk by science fiction author, scientist, tech-consultant and futurist David Brin, who will be speaking to us on ‘Human Survival Amid Existential Risk’, as part of this year's research programme: 'Organic Systems: Bodies, Environments and Ecologies'. The talk will be followed by a Q&A and drinks reception.
David Brin is the author of the award-winning Uplift series, as well as numerous stand-alone novels, graphic novels and short stories, and has received the Hugo, Locus, Campbell and Nebula Awards. His non-fiction writing includes The Transparent Society: Will Technology Force Us to Choose Between Privacy and Freedom? (1998), for which he was awarded the American Library Association's Freedom of Speech Award, and he has been invited to speak in the past by, among others, the White House, NASA, IBM, Google, and members of the US intelligence community.
This is a rare opportunity to hear one of the world’s most influential futurists and authors of science fiction speak in the UK and we do hope you will join us for what promises to be a fascinating and stimulating evening. Places are limited and are likely to run out quickly, so do please book yours on Eventbrite to join.
