Science fiction is sometimes called “the literature of engineers,” and so it is no surprise that Georgia Tech has support SF classes and events since the early 1970s—or that LMC-based science fiction faculty, students, and alumni feature heavily in September issue of Georgia Tech’s alumni magazine, “How Tech Helps Make Sci Fi Become Reality.” Features of special note include an interview with SF author and Professor of the Practice Kathleen Ann Goonan, an essay exploring “why science fiction is important” by STAC alum Jason Ellis, a feature on the Sci Fi Lab Radio Show featuring DM grad student Travis Gasque, and interviews about LMC’s new science fiction minor with professors Lisa Yaszke and Jay Telotte.

 

The special issue aims to excite readers about all the fantastic, future-oriented projects that faculty are engaged in at Georgia Tech. In particular, the editors wanted to capture the fact that Tech is unique in that we both create and study the future here! So this was an excellent opportunity to feature humanities-oriented work in this field, especially as that work takes place in LMC and in our Sci Fi@Tech initiatives.
