The Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University engages in research, outreach and radical collaborations to reinvent our relationship with the future. From writers, artists and teachers to scientists, engineers and technologists, we bring diverse intellectual practices together to reignite humanity’s grand ambitions for innovation and discovery. The center serves as a network hub for audacious ideas and a cultural engine for thoughtful optimism through programs like Project Hieroglyph, a public community of science fiction authors, scientists and researchers. We provide a space for productive collaboration among the humanities, arts and sciences, bring human narratives to scientific questions, and explore the full social implications of cutting-edge research.
