Episode Details

Original tape date: October 26, 2014.

First aired: October 26, 2014.

On the second episode of the new season of Study With the Best, we’ll move forward into the future, sometimes, by going back. The City Tech Mechatronics lab has created TOBIAS, a mechanical-powered robot with far-reaching implications for the future. Scholar Ximena Gallardo of LaGuardia Community College will talk about the representation of women in science fiction films. Barry Mitchell takes us back in time to the 1964 New York World’s Fair where we revisit some wild predictions of the future. Then, Carrie Hintz, a Queens College associate professor, talks about utopian and dystopian fictions. And finally, we’ll see how a fellow from the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism is taking people’s online lives offline, with the creation of her fictional – and non-fictional – walking tours of NYC.
