About the lecture
According to common understanding, imagination does not necessarily belong to the "law-typical" characteristics. This profession-typical restraint also applies to the engagement with non-legal literature. However, current problems of regulation, from the question of rights for AI and technology-based totalitarian temptations to problems of gender fluidity, especially in SF literature, are addressed in a sometimes quite sophisticated way. In the lecture, the aim is to campaign for more acceptance of the possibility of broadening horizons that this implies.

Participation is possible online using the link provided in the attached poster.
