an annual rediscovery of Galileo’s story and its influence on the relationship between science and culture, in the context of his time and ours.
Featuring a new play by Natalie Copeland
"Time and Time Again” is the first half of a play that explores the nature of time from the perspective of nature itself. Deep in the ancient forests of the Pacific Northwest, a mouse and a tree find themselves weathering a storm by telling stories from around the woods. These tales center upon the experience and measurement of time in the wild, reminding us that the scientific stories we tell about the world today are just the newest version of the tales we've been telling for centuries.
The Galileo Dialogues will take place Wednesday, March 21st in the Seattle University Student Union Building, Room 160.
Presented in collaboration with the Seattle University Physics Department, the evening features a staged reading and an audience conversation about diverse relations between science and society.
