“Quantum unlearning” refers to the process of deep questioning that quantum physics demands from us: through physics we discover that the universe does not respect our intuitive notions about subjectivity, objectivity, knowability, categorization, and even existence itself.  In this symposium we ask whether these facts of matter matter, to individuals and communities seeking to address problems far beyond the physics lab.  Bringing scientists, scholars, and artists into conversation, we set the stage to productively dismantle, complicate, and overlap our preconceptions about what it means to know, relate, and act in the world.
