Science in Public 2013

25 Jul 2013


This week we presented our work on representations of identity management technologies in film and television at the Science in Public conference, held at the University of Nottingham. We were included on a panel addressing Science Fiction and the Social Construction of Science and Technology, and though the papers were rather diverse, there were some interesting synergies, not least the idea that science fiction (and, we would suggest, much realist narrative involving technology) is as much about examining society and the human condition as it is about gadgets and spaceships. You can look at our presentation here.
