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.
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday October 27 4-6pm
GALLERY TALK: Monday, October 29 10am
This is a group exhibition featuring artists whose work depicts visions of future dystopias based on a turbulent present. Desert wastelands, faux fallen satellites, devises designed to ensure your survival and a world seemingly run by giant computer servers; the artists in this show offer a prescient window into a world that not only may be, but in some places, already exists.
Artists include Lisa Adams, Libby Clarke, Daniel Dove, Trygve Faste, Sean Higgins, Kelly McLane, Thomas Muller and Klutch Stanaway.

The Department of Psychology presents their 2012 Brown Bag Series with Jesse Graham, Department of Psychology at USC.
Ideological Conflicts as Opposing Moral Visions
Why do our moral convictions feel like objective truth, and yet differ so greatly across individuals and cultures? How do shared ideological narratives influence our sense of right and wrong, and how do our moral convictions influence our political choices? This talk will explore these questions with an investigation of the interactions between morality and ideology.
This event is scheduled for December 7, 2012, 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in Sierra Hall 322.
