» UAH Louis Salmon Library Refined Researchers Series Presentation
The 20th century saw the rise of the scientist as a science-horror villain, and scientific progress was increasingly linked to the death and doom of humankind. Why would someone like H.P.

An overview of science-horror and the factors behind it will be given by Doug Bolden (doug.bolden@uah.edu) on Oct. 21, from 5:30 p.m., to 6:30 p.m., in the library (room 111).
