T103 | Back to the Future of Science Fiction | Linda Neville

Tuesdays 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. | Six Sessions on Zoom -  4/2, 4/9, 4/16, 4/23, 4/30, 5/7

Starting with a showing of the film Metropolis (1927) we will visit the themes presented by writers of science fiction. Who are the authors we should read? What are they trying to tell us? Has science fiction changed over the years? If you love sci-fi come and join us; if you haven't been a fan, you are still welcome to find out more. Expect class discussions about time-travel, robotics, exploration of unknown worlds, and consequences of going too far with an idea are a part of this course. The journey is half the fun! 

Linda E. Neville earned her M.Ed from Penn State University and was a secondary English teacher and adult basic education teacher in North Adams, MA. This is her fifth course for OLLI. The fields of science and literature have occupied most of her reading and writing over the years.
