Celebrating the Centenary of ‘A Voyage to Arcturus’

November 19, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This is an online event.

2020 marks 100 years since the publication of A Voyage to Arcturus, a science fiction novel by Scottish author David Lindsay. Join the conversation as Lindsay specialists and enthusiasts celebrate the novel and its major influence on key fantasy authors of our time, including C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Philip Pullman. A Voyage to Arcturus takes its protagonist from an observatory in Scotland to a new world across space, and explores philosophical and spiritual questions while creating a fully-fledged imaginary planet.

This event is part of the hub series organised by the University of Glasgow.
