Upcoming Events

Issues events connect our contributors with a dynamic community of interested readers, experts, and policymakers. These events emphasize the unique role Issues plays in raising the level of debate among all those who appreciate the critical contributions of science and technology. We also occasionally highlight events from our partnering institutions—the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and Arizona State University—and other events around the national capital that will be of interest to our audience.

Science Fiction/Real Policy Book Club: LOCK IN by John Scalzi

The detective novel imagines a world in which a pandemic left 5 million people in the United States alone with lock in syndrome: fully conscious but unable to move.
