Reading Group: Eco/Sci/Fi – Session 2

Jameel Library Reading Groups resume with Eco/Sci/Fi. These reading group sessions provide participants with science fiction writing that explores themes within and around ecology. Each session within this themed series features a different reading group leader, whose aim is to foster a discussion around sustainability, environmental issues and technology within speculative futures (and pasts).

Featured readings are extracted from On the Origin of Species and Other Stories by Bo Young Kim.

In this session of the Eco/Sci/Fi series, participants will be reading An Evolutionary Myth by Bo Young Kim. The session is led in English by writer and editor Deena Rashid.

The reading groups are free and open to all. Registration is required, as space is limited. Registered participants are expected to commit to the reading material and to attend the session they have registered to maintain a respectful, informed and open discursive environment. 

Please register via the RSVP button.
