Online-lecture: Brave New Storyworlds

Literary AI Narratives in Contemporary English Literature

In this presentation, Curtis Runstedler argues that literary narratives function as invaluable tools for critical reflection upon intelligent systems, and moreover act as catalysts for cultural change. To illustrate this, he cites two Anglophonic texts depicting intelligent systems: Ishiguro’s Klara and the Sun (2021) and Isaac Asimov's short story Robbie (1950).
