Science and Imagination: A Blueprint for Better Futures - Ed Finn, The Center for Science and the Imagination, ASU

Ed Finn is founding director of the Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University and associate professor in the School of Arts, Media, and Engineering. He also serves as the academic director of Future Tense, a partnership between ASU, New America, and Slate Magazine, and a co-director of Emerge, an annual festival of art, ideas, and the future. Ed’s research and teaching explore digital narratives, creative collaboration, and the intersection of the humanities, arts, and sciences.

Most people don’t think about the future, or if they do, it is with anxiety or ambivalence. How can we change our relationship with the future and connect positive outcomes with our choices today? This talk will discuss the work of the Center for Science and the Imagination in designing and sharing visions of the future that are imaginative, inclusive, and inspiring.
