Life without Earth

Spring 2020: Monday and Wednesday, 12:15-1:30pm 
Ross-Blakely Hall, Room 171

  • What kinds of Earthly reliances and restrictions do we take for granted?
  • How might Earthly life expand beyond the Earth?
  • What notions about life do we assume because of our shared planetary heritage?
 
 

Engage with imaginative storytelling, build exciting new prototypes, and curate a collaborative vision of Life without Earth

Interdisciplinary students and faculty will engage with questions related to the interconnections between life as we know it and this planet we still call home. We will also imagine possibilities for futures in space alongside other literary, philosophical, scientific, social, and cultural attempts to unravel our entangled concepts of life and Earth. In collaboration with faculty and experts, students curate, design, and produce an exhibit of their inquiry’s final outcomes to advance the public’s understanding as we consider what life without Earth will look like.
