LSFRC Presents David Brin: 'Human Survival Amid Existential Risk'
Mon, April 10, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:45 PM BST
The London Science Fiction Research Community is privileged to be hosting this talk by acclaimed science fiction author, scientist, tech-consultant and futurist David Brin. The topic of David’s talk, ‘Human Survival Amid Existential Risk’, has never been so relevant, and promises to make his visit a fine complement to our annual research programme - ‘Organic Systems: Bodies, Environments and Ecologies.’
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 Nebular Awards. His non-fiction writing includes The Transparent Society: Will Technology Force Us to Choose Between Privacy and Freedom?, for which he was awarded the American Library Associations 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. We do hope you will join us for what will be a fascinating and stimulating evening.
