Books@Night (On Zoom): “The Disordered Cosmos”

December 28, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join us for a moderated discussion about books with Jewish themes.
This month’s selection: “The Disordered Cosmos: A Journey into Dark Matter, Spacetime, and Dreams Deferred” by Chanda Prescod-Weinstein

Winner of the 2022 PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Award; A Smithsonian Magazine Best Science Book of 2021; A Publishers Weekly Best Nonfiction Book of the Year

One of the leading physicists of her generation, Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein is also one of fewer than one hundred Black American women to earn a PhD from a department of physics. Her vision of the cosmos is vibrant, buoyantly nontraditional, and grounded in Black and queer feminist lineages.
Dr. Prescod-Weinstein urges us to recognize how science, like most fields, is rife with racism, misogyny, and other forms of oppression. She lays out a bold new approach to science and society, beginning with the belief that we all have a fundamental right to know and love the night sky. The Disordered Cosmos dreams into existence a world that allows everyone to experience and understand the wonders of the universe.

Discussion is led by a synagogue member.
