    Science Media Awards & Summit in the Hub 2016: Marco Werman talks with Richard Wrangham and Steven Pinker

    11:00am

    More than at any point in history, media today has the power to break down cultural barriers and forge a sense of interconnectedness across the planet. At the same time, media can be used as a tool to incite violence, evidenced by the terrifying new dimensions of terrorism and crime. But, what does the future hold? Can society shed the mantle of our ancestors to forge a more peaceful future or is violence hard-wired into our DNA? Marco Werman interviews two of our generation’s most incisive thinkers on this subject.
