Session 2: Let's Escape... Backwards

  • Gasworks Arts Park (map)

It matters not how many times physicists tell us that travelling back in time is impossible, speculative writers will continue to use it as a central theme. Why do time-slip stories fascinate us so much, and how is this device best used in fiction? Lifelong time-slip fanatic Emily Gale will use a variety of well-known children’s books, YA and adult fiction to examine the hows and whys of time travel, taking a close look at the methods employed to make readers suspend their disbelief, and the profound themes explored by this ‘impossible’ concept.
