Gabriel Teodros and Walidah Imarisha on Sci-Fi, Social Justice and the Radical Imagination

 

  1. Science Fiction, Social Justice, and the Radical Imagination

    Walidah Imarisha and Gabriel Teodros, with a special video discussion from Mumia Abu Jamal, examine the ways in which visionary science and fantasy fiction can inspire the radical imagination to envision the features of a socially just world.

    They discuss and read from the new edited collection “Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements” (AK Press - [http://www.akpress.org/octavia-s-brood.html]) which seeks to demonstrate a connection between speculative writing and movements for transformative social change.  


    This event was sponsored by the Anarres Project for Alternative Futures [http://anarresproject.org/] and the School of History, Philosophy, and Religion. [http://liberalarts.oregonstate.edu/shpr]
