Charles Tung, associate professor of English, gave the keynote lecture, “The Angel of Alternate History in the Space Between,” at the 19th annual conference of The Space Between: Literature and Culture 1914–1945, at the University of Mississippi, Oxford, MS, on May 26. Tung was interviewed by The Space Between Journal in advance of the conference, which can be found here. His talk focused on strange conceptions of time and future possibilities that arose in the 1930s, which were defined by the rise of fascism, actuarial impulses of New Deal modernisms, and reconfigurations of hope in dark times. 

In addition, Tung spoke to SU students at the University Honors Program’s Touchstone Lecture, “Time Machines, Anthropocene Clocks, and Alternate History,” on May 22.
