Stranger than Fiction: Science Fiction, Climate Change, and Resistance

Instructor: Michael Horka

Tuesday, August 1, 7:00–9:00 pm

Revenge of the nerds! What can science fiction novels tell us about both climate change and the political climate? Join for a spin through dystopia, catastrophe, survival, and speculative futures. Along the way, we will learn about what makes science fiction such a powerful genre for imagining the future and resistance in the present.

Michael Horka is a Ph.D. candidate at George Washington University and is planning to build an ark with his science fiction novels when the time comes.

Each Little Academy class takes place in the private, second-story space at Bourbon, a laid-back and top-notch watering hole in the heart of Adams Morgan. We have full access to the bar and kitchen downstairs. And arrive a little early to shoot the breeze and take advantage of happy hour, which runs till 7pm.

Every class is two hours long and one night only. Curiosity required.
