Weaving Science into Story

Many of the most important stories of our time are grounded in or heavily influenced by science. But the story of science is rarely well-told. At its best, like any good narrative, science is a search for insight. But its pursuit can also magnify the worst human tendencies—hubris, injustice, and exploitation. In this class, we’ll discuss how to weave science into personal stories and explore what is at once beautiful, vital, and occasionally monstrous about the search for answers.
