About

 

The Maison Française d'Oxford Science-Fiction Fortnight will include a three-day international symposium, an exhibition, free film screenings and debates. The event will facilitate exchanges btw the sciences and the humanities, between academics coming from France and Britain, between popular culture and academia. The interdisciplinary symposium carries the title Race, Gender and Technology in Science-Fiction, and is oriented so as to reflect the research interests of the MFO, namely Literature, Politics, History of Science and Techniques, Classical and Byzantine Studies. The exhibition, film screenings and the debates organised around guest speakers programmed for Wednesday 24 and Saturday 27 April will be undertaken in partnership with the Nantes Utopiales.
