Science Fiction, Dystopia, And How It Relates To Real Life

KSMU - Ozarks Public Radio

On this episode of STEM Spots, Dr. Cornelison sits down with Assistant Deptartment Head of the English Deptartment at Missouri State University, Dr. Etta Madden, to discuss science fiction, dystopian literature, and the relevance of those books during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. David Cornelison has been working as an educator and scientist in Arizona and Missouri universities for the last 32 years. From 2010-2018, he was the head of the Department of Physics, Astronomy and Materials Science at Missouri State University. His research interests lie at the intersection of experimental condensed-matter physics and astrophysics, while his educational efforts have focused on outreach to the K-12 school system. Most of all, he believes in curiosity-driven learning in the sciences and all other fields.
