Why are so many romantic aliens humanoid?
18 Aug 2019, Sunday 13:00 – 13:50, Wicklow Hall 2A (Dances) (CCD)
There is a wealth of human/alien romance but, although they might have scales or extra arms, aliens are mostly depicted as humanoids. Are there any romantic aliens with other forms, or does it become too difficult to create a believable attraction? The panel will discuss how the SF romance genre portrays alien life and the possible reasons for those portrayals.
