Tomorrow’s Fantasies

Date & Time: 5 June 2012, 5:30pm
Venue: Globe Hall
Speaker(s): Nick Harkaway, Justina Robson and Henrietta L. Moore
Chair: Samira Ahmed

Prophets of the future are being ostracised from the canon. Is this reluctuance to accept speculation in the arts a symptom of  decline, as we no longer wish to imagine new  possibilities for culture and our lives? Or is fantasising about the future a childish past-time which avoids real engagement with human nature?

Fantastical novelists Nick Harkaway and Justina Robson and Henrietta L. Moore imagine a brave new world.
