Refiguring Atheism

Date(s):May 3, 6—7 p.m.
Location:Picnic Market Café
Recent attacks on religion by people such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris represent an irresponsible naiveté that misunderstands and misrepresents one of the most important religious phenomena — atheism. Not all “religions” presuppose belief in God and in the Western tradition; many of the most important and influential theological figures were atheists. To refigure atheism is to think religion otherwise.

Adventures in Science Fiction Today

Date(s):June 7, 6—7 p.m.
Location:Picnic Market Café
As we move deeper into the 21st century, science fiction continues to offer critical commentary and imaginative dramatization of science’s latest developments. As they revisit the traditional tropes and themes of science fiction, writers such as Stephen Baxter, Nicola Griffith and Peter Watts describe human progress and potential failures in the developing fields of genetic engineering, information and environmental science, and space programs. This talk will survey current writers and trends and address issues such as globalization, the ubiquity of trilogies and new frontiers in science fiction.
