Emerge 2017 is an art, science and technology festival that explores new forms of scientific and creative responsibility in the 21st century. 


Join us on the Tempe campus February 25th during ASU’s Night of the Open Door for music, art, performance, debate, monsters and more.  

No work of literature has done more to shape the way we imagine science and its moral consequences than Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus (1818), an enduring tale of creation and responsibility written in the midst of a global climate crisis with illuminating parallels to the global challenges we face today. Two centuries after its publication, Frankenstein remains a ubiquitous narrative for exploring complex relationships among science, technology, the arts, and society, and a rich source of inspiration for exploring alternative futures.
