The Hunger Games & the Science Fiction Tradition

I thought this might be of interest: on September 1, 2012, there's a live, online webinar event called "The Hunger Games and the Science Fiction Tradition."

Here's the description:

How does the story of Katniss Everdeen – the District 12 tribute, the Girl on Fire, the Mockingjay -- fit into the genre tradition? Join award-winning scholar Dr. Amy H. Sturgis as she discusses The Hunger Games (both in book and film form) as science fiction. The multimedia presentation will consist of four sections ("Mythological Underpinnings," "Futuristic Science," "Post-Apocalyptic Nightmares and Dystopian Landscapes," and "Young Adult Heroes and Heroines in Science Fiction") followed by a live Q&A session. This two-hour event will take place 11am-1pm EST on September 1, 2012.

A detailed outline of the topics to be discussed and additional information is available here.
