  • Join us for an online discussion of the short story, “The Void” by Leigh Alexander. This story is the second in a series for Future Tense Fiction presented by Slate and Arizona State University’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, as part of its Learning Futures and Principled Innovation work. 

    This Future Tense Fiction series aims to explore how learning experiences — of all kinds — will be shaped by technology and other future forces, along with the moral, ethical and social challenges this will entail. 

    Author Leigh Alexander and Andrea K. Thomer, information scientist and assistant professor at the University of Michigan School of Information will lead the conversation, while Punya Mishra, professor and associate dean of scholarship and innovation at MLFTC, will moderate. Read the story and response essay, and join us for the discussion.


    Future Tense is a partnership of Slate, New America, and Arizona State University that examines emerging technologies, public policy, and society.
