In this talk for the Centre for Digital Cultures, Dr Liz Stainforth (University of Leeds) will introduce several of her recent research projects (‘Computing Utopia’, the ‘Transcultural Fantastic’ and ‘J.G. Ballard’s Invisible Library’) and share perspectives on science/speculative fiction as a lens for critical studies of technology and digital culture.

She will also consider how digital humanities approaches have informed and shaped her research over the last six years. This will be followed by a broader discussion, and invite shared dialogue on the topic and related themes.

The talk is free to attend and will be followed by a drinks reception. All are welcome - we hope to see you there!
