Science, Serendipity and the Search for Truth (by USCAnnenberg)

Award-winning science reporter, author and journalism professor K.C. Cole together with physics professor Clifford Johnson opened Science, Serendipity and the Search for Truth, a year-long series of conversations and performances examining science “alongside music, theater, journalism, religion, film, dance and other disciplines to see what serendipitous connections might bubble up. The informality of the presentations and discussions will encourage intellectual risk-taking—both on the part of the presenters and the audience.” This first program focused on Uncertainty—the heart of quantum mechanics as well as matters of the heart. Cole engaged Johnson and the audience in conversation on uncertainty as it is used, abused and misunderstood in journalism and physics. This is USC Annenberg’s inaugural event as part of the University’s Arts & Humanities Initiative.
