Frederic Jameson: "Cyberpunk and Finance Capital" Monday

This noted Marxist and a literary critic will talk on Monday evening (7:30) at the Dole Center. It's the first in a series of major lectures established by James Gunn's brother (Gunn is the founder of the Center for the Study of SF), so it'd be great if area SF fans can attend.

Jameson is going to talk on "Cyberpunk and Finance Capital." Hard to say how much will be about SF and how much about Marxism, but he does have respect for SF and the blurring of boundaries between literary categories. If you help spread the word to SF fans in the area, the Center would appreciate it!

Best,
Chris
