event information

venue

When Stephen Hawking once famously held a cocktail party for time travellers and nobody showed up, he said it proved time travel was not possible. But is it? If you have a lifelong fascination with time travel, or even just a passing curiosity about it, this event is for you.

James Gleick, leading science communicator and author of 'Time Travel', gives a mind-bending exploration of this fascinating subject: its subversive origins, its evolution in literature and science, and its influence on our understanding of time itself. From H.G. Wells to Doctor Who, from pulp fiction to modern physics, Gleick will explore as many facets of time travel as possible in just one hour. Bring your burning questions.



Chaired by San Francisco State University Professor Daniel Bernardi, film and media studies scholar and science fiction expert.
