Skutt Student Center, Room 105

Monday, September 9, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

"East and West Connect and Compete: Anglo-American and Russian Science Fiction in the Cold War and Beyond"
Lecture by Professor Sibelan Forrester, Swarthmore College

Sibelan Forrester teaches Russian language and literature at Swarthmore College, including a course on Russian and East European Science Fiction. She has published numerous articles on Russian literature and is active as a translator of prose and poetry. Her latest publication on science fiction was the co-authored introduction to a special cluster of articles on early Soviet and post-Soviet SF in the journal /Slavic Review/ (summer, 2013). Her talk will briefly outline the shape of that tradition over the past 125 years and then focus in on the relationship of Soviet and Anglo-American science-fiction during the Cold War - with a glance at the translations of Japanese science fiction into Russian in the same period.
