Presentation Title:

  • “In the Beginning” or...: The Cosmic Stories We Tell and Their Implications

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • What are the stories we tell today about the origin(s) and structure(s) of the cosmos? Is there a connection between cosmological stories and the socio-political landscape in which they emerge and continue to be told? Do these stories affect our relationship to this planet and one another and if so, how? Is it possible for seemingly incompatible narratives to productively co-exist suggesting a way to embrace complexity?
