Against Realism
by Claude Lalumière

I think this would have made a really interesting essay to read, but it was difficult to follow as a lecture/reading.

Notes:
- was told "be controversial", so this talk is meant to challenge
- realism = comfort of hegemony vs. "pleasure" of challenge of specfic
- red herring of objective reality
- truth is the quest itself
- we remember stories of events, not the events themselves
- meaning lies not in facts
- myths give meaning -> in telling, the event acquires meaning

- non-realist art threatens the establishment

biography => confessional fiction => Canadian literature (CanLit)

- write what you didn't even know you wanted to know
- "leap of empathy"
- mechano-morphism
- Christianity is embedded in science (e.g. in dominion over animals)
- hard SF is art conforming to reality
