Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

Classrooms are places where stories are being told. Stories about the scientific facts and laws of nature that make sense of the inanimate universe around us. But also stories about choices that human beings make when they interact with one another economically, politically or socially. Star Wars is a story told by humans about how economic, political and social agents and institutions interact, make choices, rise to certain occasions and fall as a result of others. This session is about how we can use a story, like Star Wars, to tell our own stories in our classes, about what we can learn from such a story and why we should be looking into this at all.
