About this Event

A celebration of 100 years since the publication of A Voyage to Arcturus, a science fiction novel by Scottish author David Lindsay. The novel takes its protagonist from an observatory in Scotland to a new world across space, and explores philosophical and spiritual questions while creating a fully-fledged imaginary planet. Join the conversation as Lindsay specialists and enthusiasts celebrate this novel and its major influence on key fantasy authors of our time, including C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Philip Pullman.

This event is presented by the College of Arts at the University of Glasgow as part of the Being Human festival, the UK’s only national festival of the humanities, taking place 12–22 November.
