Virtual
Symposium

All day

 

This event is private.

This virtual SFI Symposium focused on the acute symptoms resulting from the decline of multiple, coupled complex systems, as well as the longer-term transformations stemming from our current crises. Specific domains of inquiry included the transformations in: market, global climate, disease and treatment, cities, and belief dynamics. The intellectual underpinning of this meeting is largely based on a recent publication by David Krakauer and Geoffrey West (here).

 

Day 1 Friday, November 13th

FROM TUNNEL VISION TO LATERAL VISION - In the Media & Elsewhere with  Gillian Tett

Gillian Tett kicked off this year's Symposium by exploring the need to integrate diverse perspectives to anticipate future crises and other disruptions. Bringing an anthropological perspective, Gillian placed particular emphasis on the informational and cultural dynamics that prevent some domains from being fully integrated into the perspectives of outsiders; examples included finance, ad tech, and epidemiology.
