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 models 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? Must we be locked into a system of a singular master narrative in describing the cosmos, or can we imagine the possibility of the coexistence of narratives that are seemingly incongruous but allow us to embrace the complexity of information available?
