article imageFree science fiction conference at the British Library

By Alexander Baron     Jul 28, 2011 in World
London - On September 16, the British Library is running a conference for science fiction buffs and admission is free, but book early to avoid disappointment.
The British Library is not only Britain and the world’s leading research archive, it holds regular events of interest both to academics and the general public, like the conference on welfare benefits it organised last May.
On September 16, it will be hosting a study day “to explore the ways in which science fiction has inspired and had impact upon research and study across a wide range of disciplines”.
The event is said to be of particular interest to postgraduate researchers, but it is likely that Dr Who fans and many others will find it fascinating. The all-day event is absolutely free; to book a ticket please visit the information page.
The British Library is not a public library, so if you are not a pass holder you will not be able to use the reading rooms, but there is free access to the Library’s on-line catalogues, and galleries, including exhibitions; the Out of this World: Science Fiction but not as you know it exhibition is already running, and is likely to be of interest to conference attendees.
The British Library also has a bookshop and a reasonably priced restaurant.
The building is literally a stone's throw from St Pancras International and Kings Cross St Pancras stations; travelling by public transport is highly recommended.
