J.G. Ballard & the Sciences Conference Part 1/7

Hosted by the Anglia Ruskin Centre for Science Fiction and Fantasy (CSFF)
Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge
25th November 2017.

9.40-10.45 am: Welcome and Keynote by Christopher Priest.

“Science and technology multiply around us. To an increasing extent they dictate the languages in which we speak and think. Either we use those languages, or we remain mute.” J.G. Ballard

From The Drowned World’s early meditations on ecology, to the provocative prosthetics of Crash, through to the psychopathologies at work (or rather play) in Cocaine Nights, Super-Cannes and Kingdom Come, the writings of J.G. Ballard are in constant dialogue with the discourses of science and technology.
