Title: "And that just about sums it up for humanity" - the scientific work of Jared Diamond

Status: not this year

Proposed by: Margaret Dunlop


Jared Diamond's non-fiction work accessibly covers the entire of human history - the evolution of humans and human sexuality (The Rise and Fall of the Third Chimpanzee and Why is Sex Fun?), the evolution of agriculture and different cultures (Guns, Germs and Steel) through to an assessment of how societies choose to survive or fail (Collapse). Come and find out a bit about the work of Jared Diamond.

(I am happy to run this as a bit on some of Diamond's theories - eg why Australia may or may not survive a potential environmental collapse).

Maia - A little too much crossover with other 'collapse/apocalypse' panels.
