Speaker Nicholas Christakis, Professor of Social and Natural Science at Yale University, USA
Category Conferences - Seminars

Using up-to-the-moment information, and drawing on epidemiology, medicine, public health, sociology, economics, history, virology, and other fields, Nicholas Christakis explores what it means to live in a time of plague — an experience that is paradoxically uncommon to the vast majority of humans who are alive, yet deeply fundamental to our species.  Unleashing new divisions in our society as well as new opportunities for cooperation, this 21st-century pandemic has upended our lives in ways that test our frayed collective culture.  Apollo’s Arrow envisions what happens when the great force of a deadly germ meets the enduring reality of our evolved social nature.
