Watch a screening of “Fringe” and have a conversation about Big Science corporations, crises and space-time anomalies with Andrew Maynard, professor at ASU’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society and director of the Risk Innovation Lab, and Heather Ross, clinical assistant professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and the College of Nursing and Health Innovation.
Dinner is available for the first 150 guests.
“Fringe” is a police procedural tailored for a conspiracy-addled culture: a fever dream of near-future biotechnology research, Timothy Leary-esque 1960s counterculture and the seemingly ineluctable creep of corporate governance.
Created by J. J. Abrams, the mastermind behind “Lost,” “Alias,” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Fringe envisions a future shaped by shadowy, unaccountable “Big Science” corporations. The series follows a small group of FBI investigators as they try to untangle an increasingly bewildering web of misdeeds and crises — and eventually, anomalies bubbling up in the fabric of space-time.
Professor Maynard and Professor Ross host the Future Out Loud podcast, and the discussion at the event will be recorded for an upcoming episode.
