Tuesday, September 18 - Friday, July 26 All Day - Tseng Gallery, Oviatt Library
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.
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm - Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451
The Distinguished Visiting Speakers Program Presents...
Professor Joshua Correll featuring Can We Train Away Racial Bias in the Decision to Shoot?
This talk will focus on a question that has perplexed us for 5 years. Using a videogame task in which participants must make shoot/don't-shoot decisions about Black and White targets who appear on screen, we find that naive participants show a pronounced pattern of racial bias in the decision to shoot.
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.
Additional events including lectures and artists visits in conjunction for this exhibition can be found at www.csun.edu/artgalleries.
Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 12-4, Thursdays 12-8pm. Please note: The Gallery will be closed Nov. 12 and Nov. 22-24.
