Discover Murdoch University Library’s unique Science Fiction collections

Have you ever wondered what happened to those science fiction fanzines and convention materials from the 60’s and 70’s, and how they might be used by researchers and community members today?

Join Dr Jessie Lymn, Special Collections Fellowship recipient, as she provides a rare insight into Science Fiction fanzines at Murdoch University Library; how they reflect the cultural, political and social issues of their era and the importance of the human networks around them.

This will be followed by a unique panel discussion with Dr. Leigh Edmonds, the collection donor, Grant Stone, the collector librarian and Dr. Jessie Lymn, the researcher.

When: Friday 3rd March 2017, 3:45 for 4:00 p.m. start
Where: Hill Lecture Theatre, Murdoch University.
RSVP: goto.murdoch.edu.au/DiscoverSF by Monday 27th February 2017
