Working Class Science Fiction
From Le Guin's "The Dispossessed" to Newitz's "Autonomous," science fiction has often grappled with the future of work and the worker's place in society. We'll look at a selection of works throughout the history of science fiction and see how the ways we imagine work have changed over time.
