Poetry, Science, and the Imagination

March 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Image is pleased to present our inaugural L’Engle Seminar

Poetry, Science, and the Imagination 

a five-part seminar with Brian Volck and special guests

Wednesdays in March at 1pm ET

Poetry and the sciences are connected in deep and surprising ways. Both the poet and the scientist engage reality through the imagination. And in this five-part online seminar, you are invited to explore imagination as a way of knowing within the two disciplines. Each hour-long session will have a distinct focus and feature the insight of a wide array of poets, scientists, philosophers, and theologians.

The series is open to everyone who reads poetry, took a science class in school, or has an imagination!

March 10: The Same Necessity

Humans are pattern-seeking creatures. Poetry and the sciences begin in observation followed by imaginative reflection, each discipline attempting to induce an inherent or imposed order in a chaotic universe. How much can we confidently know about the observed world? Does either discipline reliably grant access to reality?

Special guest: Mary Peelen, poet and mathematician, talking about order and pattern
