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.
