Concept of XI KRYAKK
XI Krasnoyarsk Book Culture Fair:
Science and Culture
XI Krasnoyarsk Book Culture Fair (XI KRYAKK) will be organized over the period of 2 to 6 November 2017.
The main theme of this year's fair is "Science and Culture".
How do scientific discoveries affect our perception of the world and the idea of a human being? How does the general pool of social metaphors, by which science and culture exchange, develop? What new ethical problems does technological progress bring to the society? Why does the rapprochement of the humanitarian and natural sciences take place at certain historical stages? How does new humanitarian knowledge shape the cultural memory of the past? How does science fiction anticipate scientific discoveries and what is the fate of this genre in the new medial space?
These and many other issues will be discussed within the cultural program of XI KRYAKK.
The Government of Krasnoyarsk region and the Administration of the city of Krasnoyarsk are committed partners of Krasnoyarsk Book Culture Fair.
