Harper Collins Publishing, via ASU Center for Science and the Imagination Hieroglyph is a collection of stories designed to create a more positive vision of the future.
ASU's Center for Science and the Imagination is making us question everything we thought we knew about Arizona's favorite party school. The Center, which considers itself a "network hub for audacious moonshot ideas and a cultural engine for thoughtful optimism," seeks to unite writers, philosophers, scientists, and engineers to create a less dystopic vision of the relationship between scientific progress and humanity. This effort toward collaboration, human decency, and general positivity is a huge step forward for the University, whose ever-so-intelligent student body once brought us the "MLK Black Party."
Part of this effort involves the recent publication of a book called Hieroglyph: Stories & Visions for a Better Future. The anthology is a collection of stories by some pretty big thinkers -- including Neal Stephenson, Elizabeth Bear, and Madeline Ashby.More »
