No One Has to Listen to This: Why Storytelling Matters in Science

February 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A campus event that intersects with FIRST goals:
Atlantic science writer Ed Yong will give Davidson’s 2018/2019 Wearn Lecture: No One Has to Listen to This:  Why Storytelling Matters in Science, followed by a book signing.  His 2016 book, I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life, was heralded widely as one of the best science books of the year.  His thoughtful 2018 piece describing identifying and addressing gender bias in his own writing about scientists is directly applicable to Davidson STEM faculty members who seek to share the wonder and mysteries of scientific knowledge that are generated by a diverse array of talented scientists.
