Poetry, Science, and the Imagination

March 31, 2021 @ 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 31: Finding Again the World

Poetry and the sciences must tell us something about the world if they are to have any relevance to our creative, moral, and spiritual lives. How might the sciences, poetry, and the life of faith talk to one another? How do we use the imagination responsibly?

Special guest: Robert Cording, poet and educator, talking about words and the world they reveal
