Dystopian Fiction: Talk, Exhibition and Community Film Viewing

Dystopian Fiction: Talk, Exhibition and Community Film Viewing

Thursday 14th February, 3.30 – 6.15pm

at the Iris Classics Centre at Cheney School

We are delighted to welcome Professor Greg Claeys, lecturer from Royal Holloway University, and author of “Dystopias: A Natural History” to speak at the Classics Centre about Dystopian Fiction. He will speak between 3.30 – and 4pm, followed by questions, drinks, and an opportunity to look at ideas for utopian and dystopian fiction created by our Year Eight students, who have been exploring ideal and dystopian societies from Plato’s Republic onwards.

From 4.30 – 6.15pm, we will then have a community viewing of the 2010 dystopian romantic drama “Never Let Me Go”, based on the award-winning novel by Kazuo Ishiguro. This film has a 12 rating.

If you would like to attend the talk, film viewing or both, please book by emailing info@irisproject.org.uk

The event is free.
