Science Fiction, Humanity, and the Mind

April 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$25

In an experience designed for fans of films like Blade Runner, Ex Machina, and Solaris, this discussion-based class will inspect how sci-fi authors depict the mind and mental identity and the way in which these depictions reflect our conceptions of humanity. We’ll work together to answer questions about human and post-human identities and the technologies that can alter perceptions of both as seen in fiction by Philip K. Dick, Stanislaw Lem, Mary Shelley, and others.

Reading List:
Feb: “We Can Remember it for You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick
March: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
April: Solaris by Stanislaw Lem
May: Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. LeGuin

Cameron Stubbins holds a BA in English Literature from Texas State-Corpus Christi where he worked as a writing consultant and supplementary instructor. He is currently finishing a graduate degree in Literature with a focus in Film Studies at Texas State University.

Tuesdays, Feb 19, Mar 19, April 16, & May 14
