From 1/5/16: “I recently gave a talk to colleagues about ‘Imagination and Science Fiction’…”

In my opinion mainstream media projects an unhelpful stereotyped image of science fiction that has the potential to harm Society…

In a recent talk with colleagues I was able to show how mainstream media, and Hollywood in particular, presents a very shallow image of what science fiction is actually about. I only had a maximum of 20 minutes for the talk, so the argument had to be made very quickly. I enjoyed having this opportunity to talk about the genre that has been my passion for over 35 years.

There is a recording that you can see on YouTube, the audio goes briefly awry but doesn’t spoil it (thankfully):
