  1. Hi Loïc,
    I am a senior art history student in China Central Academy of Fine Arts, and I am finishing my dissertation on aesthetic of technology in late Qing science fiction. The theme of this workshop is very attractive to me. Unfortunately, I just found it now😭 Could you please be so kind to tell me if there are any video or text records?
    Sincerely,
    Qi Rong

    • Hello,
      Sorry for my late response. Unfortunately, I don’t think there was any video recording of the conference. As far as I know, there isn’t any text records either. But you can contact each participant individually and ask them if they wrote an article about it or if they would be kind enough to send you their paper 😉
