Digital Program: The State of Science: Good Science, Bad Science, Old Science & New Science

October 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Join us for this timely book talk with Marc Zimmer, Professor of Chemistry at Connecticut College. In his new book, The State of Science, Zimmer takes on a new challenge by summarizing what modern science is and how it works. The author writes that one of the biggest problems faced by science today is the politicization and perversion of facts, from phony science surrounding questionable “health” products to the fervent anti-vaccination movement. This book was written before the COVID-19 onslaught, and yet the author’s ideas on the misrepresentation of science and public mistrust ring especially true in a time of pandemic. The State of Science shows its audience where science is, where it is heading, and which scientists are at the forefront of progress.

Marc Zimmer is the Jean C. Tempel ’65 Professor of Chemistry at Connecticut College, and author of Glowing Genes, the first popular science book on jellyfish and firefly proteins; Illuminating Diseases (Oxford University Press 2015); and three books for young adults. His writing has appeared in USA Today and the Los Angeles Times, and he has been interviewed and quoted in The Economist, Science, and Nature.
