Big Farms Make Big Flu
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.
"Wallace stands boldly on the shoulders of giants in expressing the problems with our agro-industrial system that so many see, but far too few are willing to say.”
