A Dialogue Regarding "The Material Co-Construction of Hard Science Fiction and Physics"
Geelan, David; Prain, Vaughan; Hasse, Cathrine
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v10 n4 p941-949 Dec 2015
Science fiction and the "technofantasies" of the future that it provides may attract some students to study physics. The details and assumptions informing these "imaginaries" may, on the other hand, be unattractive to other students, or imply that there is not a place for them. This forum discussion complements Cathrine Hasse's paper discussing the ways in which gender and other interests interact in the "entanglement" of physics and science fiction. The conversation interrogates some of the issues in Cathrine's paper, and brings in complementary literatures and perspectives. It discusses the possibility of a "successor science" and new, more inclusive ways of imagining and constructing our possible futures.
