About tonight's talk

Science can help us understand the greatest crisis we’ve ever found ourselves in—but so can the humanities. From the biblical book of Job to the latest science fiction, literature can help us learn what it means to have suddenly become so large and can also give us clues to how we might shrink ourselves and our society a little.
