Extention: Exploration Series with SciFi-Autors having a Stong Academic Background

  • By Bernd Saurugger

Dear IG Members,

In the our interview series we have seen, that more established researchers were also more critical of the directions of their own discipline, pointing out things their discipline would need, even if it was not mainstream or popular. This is why - towards the later phases of our Exploration Series - we thought it would be good to strengthen that perspective. We decided to extend the interview series by interviewing Sience Ficton autors, those with a strong academic background, who are able to understand the needs of their discipine, which allows them to take a wider perspective because they are not dependent on their next project grant.

This extention series is conducted by some colleagues of mine who just published their first interview with Computer Scientist and Science Fiction author Cory Doctorow. Check it out here:
