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.

Please join the Psychology Department for the next talk in the Applied Behavior Analysis Speaker Series:
Dr. Brian Iwata, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Florida.
Topic: The Medical Model, Experimental Psychopathology, and Behavior Analysis
Wednesday, June 12th at 5:4 p.m., Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451
Abstract of the Talk: Many have noted inadequacies of the "medical model" as a conceptualization for psychological disorders. The original model, however, has served the field of medicine well for over 100 years as an empirical basis for identifying causes of disease. This presentation reviews key features of the medical model as an experimental approach in medicine, its unsuccessful extension to psychological disorders, and how it can contribute to a greater understanding of behavior disorders.
