The Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University launched Us in Flux, “a series of stories and virtual events about community, collaboration, and collective imagination in times of transformative change.” They will publish an original flash fiction story each Thursday, and host a virtual event with the author in conversation with an expert in a related field on the following Monday at 4 p.m. Eastern. The first story was “The Parable of the Tares” by Christopher Rowe, who spoke with environmental sociology professor Michael Bell on April 13, 2020. Upcoming authors include Tina Connolly, Kij Johnson, Chinelo Onwualu, Tochi Onyebuchi, and Nisi Shawl. For more: <csi.asu.edu/usinflux>.
