The research for this talk was made possible my Leverhulme Professorship at the University of Leeds during the first half of 2022. It was funded by the Leverhulme Trust and hosted by Prof. Dr. Ingo Cornils, Professor of German Studies at LCS Leeds. The lecture was given on several occasions during my time in the UK, among them the following recording from the University of Glasgow, Center for Fantasy and the Fantastic. Here, I provide a link to the video, as well as the transcript and slides for those interested in contemporary German Science Fiction.
