Defining a poetic notion of the Cosmos

The Center for Humans and Nature in Chicago recently published an essay by space archaeologist Associate Professor Alice Gorman that explored the notion of an expanded understanding between people and the broader Cosmos.

The essay is part of the US Centre’s new question series: How do we understand the Cosmos as our home? The series explores our kinship with the Cosmos and how we can honour and protect life beyond Earth.

In her 1500-word essay, titled “Dreaming in Space,” Associate Professor Gorman cultivates an intergalactic imagination and writes about dreams of space and the space of dreams. It also featured a striking image and poem by US artist Christine Rueter, also known as Tychogirl.

The essay can be read online here.
