As part of the WORD Christchurch, Visiting Canterbury Fellow Professor Daniel Bernardi will be in conversation with James Gleick, the acclaimed author of Time Travel, Tuesday 16 May, 6-7pm, at The Piano, 156 Armagh St, Christchurch.
Professor Bernardi has been teaching cinema studies this semester as part of his fellowship.
Science fiction film is one of Daniel’s areas of specialisation and he is looking forward to a mind-bending discussion of time travel in literature, science and the media. Daniel has had a long abiding interest in the subject and worked for the Sci-Fi Channel as a consultant, writer and producer/host of the web feature Future Now. He is also the author of Star Trek and History: Racing Towards a White Future (available at UBS) and has edited a collection, Signs of Aliens: Semiotics of Film and Popular Culture.
