The late Stephen Hawking said, “nothing cannot exist forever.” One might have to read this a few times to grasp his meaning, but the line leads one to reflect on the expanding universe. For the USC Sidney Harman Academy for Polymathic Study’s fall 2018 opening event, Academy Director TARA McPHERSON leads a conversation with professors SEAN CARROLL, KATE FLINT, and CLIFFORD JOHNSON to expand our understanding of that malleable and mysterious concept—time. Multiverses, string theory, representations of time, flashes, and infinity are just a sampling of the topics that will be explored as we grapple with historical, artistic, and theoretical approaches to time and its various meanings.
