Ed Yong, science writer
Pulitzer prize winning science writer, Ed Yong will draw from his new book, An Immense World to reveal the hidden realms of animals’ senses and their astonishingly varied ways of
perceiving the world. Yong’s talk will explore why the pandemic was so devastating and necessary future actions. Yong engages the challenges of science writing as inevitably shaped by culture, social norms and collective decisions.
