With nearly 100 registered attendees and more unregistered, the 2nd Annual City Tech Science Fiction Symposium on Extrapolation, Interdisciplinarity, and Learning on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 was a great success! We were honored to have Samuel R. Delany give the event’s keynote address, and we had excellent presentations and panel discussions from scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates! Below, I’m embedding video of all of the presentations from the symposium. Visit this site for a copy of the program.

Samuel R. Delany’s Dhalgren will fuck with your dreams.

It’s an amazing work, and I’m glad to have read it. However, I feel the urge to read it again in order to make more sense of the vectors and puzzles that shot off the rails of the “real.” That will have to wait until I’m caught up with everything else.

I regret not having read this book a long time ago.
