Classic cartoons like The Jetsons, Huckleberry Hound, and Beany and Cecil powerfully shape our vision of the world around us, including the way that we understand science and technology. These series have enduring power because of their irrepressible humor, occasional flashes of social insight and critique, and especially their style, which transforms our often-bewildering reality into a riot of vibrant colors and expressive, emotionally resonant tableaus.
Join us for a Science Fiction TV Dinner with special guests Alberto Ríos, director of ASU’s Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing and Arizona’s first Poet Laureate, and Kevin Sandler, animation scholar and director of ASU’s Film and Media Studies program.
We’ll have dinner available for the first 150 guests. RSVP Today!
This event is presented in collaboration with ASU’s Department of English
