Human-racism and biopolitics in SF

July 01, 2008

On October 2, 2007, Robert Sawyer gave a talk at the University of Waterloo entitled “A Galaxy Far, Far Away” My Ass!, about science fiction’s relevance for the here and now.  TVOntario’s lecture series Big Ideas produced an MP3 of the talk.

Now Evan Steacy has now taken that soundtrack and put images to it, making a wonderful trio of YouTube videos out of the talk.
Episode 1: Planet of the Apes, Star Trek, and Frankenstein (6 minutes, 48 seconds)

Episode 2: H.G. Wells and Jules Verne (4 minutes, 0 seconds)

Episode 3: Star Wars (5 minutes, 17 seconds)
