H. G. Wells at 150: Martian Autopsy
Sat 19 November 2016, 17:00 – 18:00 GMT
The truth is out there. Join us for a spooky evening of extra-terrestrial dissection that promises to be out of this world. Professor Dame Sue Black, the UK’s leading forensic scientist, will conduct an historically minded mock-autopsy on a Martian created by a team of staff and students based at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art.This special performance will showcase the impact of the literary imagination on scientific endeavour and the scientific imagination on literary practice, using both Wells’s fiction and speculative essays about future human evolution. Featuring Eddie Small as Herbert Unwells and special guests.
