Science Fiction Los Angeles Two Day Conference

Presented by the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West, USC Dornsife College, and the Sidney Harman Academy for Polymathic Study, this exciting conference explores the symbiotic relationship between Los Angeles and the vibrant literary and cinematic genres of science fiction.  Organized by critic David L. Ulin and historian William Deverell, Science Fiction Los Angeles will, by way of lively panels, film screenings, and readings, explore just how Los Angeles has played such a critical role in the imagined worlds and landscapes of American science fiction writing and film.  

From a film-screening kickoff on Friday, October 28th at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Linwood Dunn Theater, the conference moves to a full-day investigation of the topic on Saturday, October 29th at the Sidney Harman Academy for Polymathic Study in Doheny Memorial Library at USC.
