This audiovisual recording from March 20, 1984 as part of the 15th annual UND Writers Conference: “Nineteen Eighty Four” features Harlan Ellison, Luisa Valenzuela, Ray Bradbury (via telephone), and Theodore Sturgeon forming the panel “Big Brother and Your Imagination.” The panelists discuss the notion of “big brother,” advancing technology, political administrations and the relationship between government, media, and American publics. They also discuss censorship, activism, and respond to audience questions about the power of art to overcome big brother, the despondency of science fiction, fear in science fiction, publication in best-seller markets, and controversy.
Moderated by John Little.
