EARL ROBINSON MEMORIAL LECTURES: CHRISTIAN FAITH IN THE WORLD

Booth UC will once again host the Earl Robinson Memorial Lecture Series in the fall and winter. This year it will take place online.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 26, 2021 – 7:00 PM CST (8:00 PM EASTERN)

Dr. Michael Boyce presents “A Final Frontier? The Uneasy Tension between Science Fiction and Faith”

This lecture will examine the often uneasy tensions in Christian Science Fiction, comparing the pioneering (though almost forgotten) writer, Victor Rousseau Emanuel (1879-1960) with C.S. Lewis (1898-1963).

Dr. Michael W. Boyce is Associate Professor of English and Film Studies at Booth University College. His research interests are film and television, fantasy literature, and popular culture.  He has written and presented papers on Edgar Allan Poe; Alec Guinness; Alfred Hitchcock; James Bond; and British war-themed television. Michael will be featured in an upcoming documentary on Rousseau, Lewis and Madeline L’Engle.
