Science fiction and fantasy enthusiasts throughout Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) and the surrounding community are invited to a Faculty Colloquium titled “Old Ideas for New Worlds: Science Fiction, Fantasy and Archetype.” Free and open to the public, the presentation takes place Thursday, November 4 at 3 p.m. in the Espada Room, Moore Hall on the Hampton campus.

Four aficionados of both science fiction and fantasy from the TNCC English faculty will discuss some of these works, their use of storytelling and archetype. Discussions will also explore a few of the most common central themes in science fiction and fantasy genres. The Colloquium panel includes Jacqueline Blackwell, Alex Chirila, Lisa Ray and Michael Weiser.

“We are an eclectic group with different tastes ranging from Philip K. Dick to Octavia Butler to Terry Pratchett, so there is sure to be something of interest to a wide audience,” notes Blackwell.
