“Island Hopping”

As part of 2022 Cleveland Humanities Festival: DISCOURSE, the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities will host a lecture titled “Island Hopping” Monday, March 28, at 5 p.m., in the Tinkham Veale University Center, Ballroom A.

How do you craft an emotional story while translating very technical and abstract information? Drawing from a raw tape of interviews with scientists, Jad Abumrad, composer, journalist, creator and host of Radiolab, focuses on the inherent struggles in science communication (or interpreting any technical or difficult information)—what happens when you get it wrong, how to fix it and how it’s useful to embrace error in the process.  

This event is sponsored by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities and Case Western Reserve University. The lecture will be live-streamed. If attending in person, registration is requested.

Register for the event.
