The Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College is a cross-discipline effort to integrate the humanities with computer science and technology, enriching both. This year it established a Literary Arts Award for Speculative Fiction, with a $5,000 prize.
On Oct. 1 the school is holding an inaugural ceremony for the book awards. Three winners, from London, Amsterdam and Chicago, will travel to Dartmouth to discuss the speculative fiction genre on a panel – “to explore how the arts can help society understand the power and dangers of technology.”
It’s free and open to all on Monday, Oct. 1. The panel discussion starts at 4 p.m., with a reception from 5 to 6:30 at the Moore Building on the campus. Details are here.
