Big Farms Make Big Flu says
In his highly acclaimed new book, Big Farms Make Big Flu, Rob Wallace employs his radical wit in essays that tell the tale of globalized food systems and infectious diseases.

On February 16, Wallace comes to Pittsburgh for a lively dialogue that crossbreeds political theory with epidemiology and agricultural history. He’ll be joined by Rich Pell, Carnegie Mellon University Professor of Art and Director of Pittsburgh’s Center for PostNatural History, who has his own unique spin on the Anthropocene: living organisms that have been altered by we humans.

This event will take place in the museum's Earth Theater, and is free. Seating is limited, and registration is required.
