Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.

The Power of Stories for Social Change
The storytelling of everyday people can serve as a living record of the human experience. By creating oral and visual histories we remove the filter of an accepted narrative about an individual's or a community's experience.
Stories surround us but what do they do beyond entertain us? How do stories bring about social change? Explore the use of stories in the classroom and in the community and bring the results to a day of "stories for social change" in public education.
Dr. Stacy Holman Jones - Storytelling in Performance
Dr. Marcella De Veaux - Storytelling in the Classroom
Dr. Theresa White - Storytelling in Documentary Film
The panel will be moderated by Nate Thomas.
This event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 20, 2013 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the VPAC Lecture Auditorium, Room 181.
