Four speakers - Dr Joanna Page (University of Cambridge), Dr María del Pilar Blanco (University of Oxford), Dr Ed King (University of Bristol) and Dr Carlos Fonseca (University of Cambridge) - offered illustrated narrations of the history of science fiction in Latin America, describing both the development and diversity of different scientific imaginations across the ages.
