I’m looking forward to this summer’s Bradford Literature Festival 2023. I’ll be speaking on Saturday 24 June from 10:30-11:30AM in City Hall alongside Professor Chris Newman on the topic of “Astropolitics: The New Frontier“.
From the website:
Join us for an insightful conversation on the new era of space race. Our experts will delve into the world of astropolitics and the growing number of countries and global tech companies vying for supremacy beyond our planet.
The idea of spy satellites in space and humans on Mars was once the stuff of science fiction but now it’s at the heart of astropolitics. But what is it exactly and what’s at stake for the rest of us? Astropolitics combines the study of space with politics, policy, and international relations. And, not surprisingly, it reflects the political tensions here on earth.
Our experts, Dr Jill Stuart, professor of astropolitics at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and Professor Chris Newman, a lecturer in international relations and space policy at Northumbria University, will explain why this new space frontier is going to have far reaching consequences.
Tickets are £7 and can be booked here.
