Why we need critical scientists and storytellers for the future of love

Why we need critical scientists and storytellers for the future of love

As curators of the 2019 SILBERSALZ Science and Media Conference, this year under the theme ‘The Science of Love’, we set out to design a program that took love as a lens through which scientists and media professionals could explore the challenges and vital importance of their collaboration. While this program left us with more questions than answers about the nature of love itself, investigating the science of love told us a lot about how we produce and mediate our knowledge about this powerful emotion on a global scale.
