Questioning the future: science-fiction, philosophy and fantasy (2010)

[at Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology] The course introduced the second-year students to different traditions of philosophical enquiry into science-fiction literature and cinema. This introduction will then be followed by an exploration of the relation between science and politics in India. This will involve a review of the work and publications of science academies around the country and extrapolate the kind of fictional worlds they can lead us to imagine.
