I applied and got myself two lectures in Tracon X. It is a Anime/RPG convention held in Tampere
in 5th and 6th of September, 2015.
First lecture is about time travelling in general terms. According to my knowledge time travel is
quite impossible (or perhaps more accurately practically impossible). Thus the lecture is all
about what would and could happen according to various science fiction authors. The basic idea is
that the actual trip is not interesting per se. It is what we see and experience. Naturally many
people would like to change things they’ve seen. This creates its own set of twists and turns.
Second lecture is about making an imaginary time travel trip to Athens during time of Pericles. I
got the idea for this lecture after reading rather funny travel guide written about ancient
Greece. The focus in this second lecture is what would a modern day visitor look at and see when
she’d travel through this city.
