Deep Conversations Space, Time Stories

Outer space has long beckoned, offering stargazers insights into new worlds, riches, and discoveries both on and beyond our home planet. This conversation brings together the insights of archaeology, international law, history, astrophysics and Indigenous knowledges to find new ways of narrating the universe beyond our planet.

Join Alice Gorman, Tristan Moss, Cassandra Steer and Pete Swanton as they reflect on the past, present and possible of storying the skies.

Deep conversations: history, environment, science series is a partnership of the Research Centre for Deep History and Centre for Environmental History. It aims to bring together scholars from diverse disciplines to discuss questions of history, science and the environment, and how they shed light on the global challenges we face today.
