RSVP - Big Questions Series - LIFE: Imagined. Discovered. Created.
May 13, 2022
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Hemmerdinger Hall

Please join us for our next community-wide conversation at our upcoming Big Questions Series event:

Imagined. Discovered. Created.

The Big Questions Series embodies the Arts & Science vision: scholars working together to address humanity’s great challenges. Past events have fostered productive cross-departmental interest and collaboration, leading to interdisciplinary grant applications and the ongoing cluster faculty hiring initiatives.

Our spring invitation for LIFE is as broad as the topic is vast, welcoming all the variegated shades of meaning to be found in the words imagined, discovered, and created. From the lab to the cultural imagination, from the cosmos to consciousness, across the reach of time, what figurations of life are dominant? Emergent? Oppositional? What intellectual, creative, or scientific histories do these figurations belong to or depart from? How are the political, environmental and cultural elements of our own historical moment shaping speculative accounts of the forms, meanings, and futures of life? How are these accounts in turn transforming our various disciplines?

All presentations will be pre-recorded videos submitted by individuals or groups of faculty exploring innovative research topics relevant to this conversation. After each panel is complete, we will open the floor for continued conversation and further reflection among guests. The hope is that this conversation will extend well beyond the event.
