Whether its diseases, political movements, or GIFs of cats waterskiing, some things have the ability to move quickly across the globe, while others don’t. This class is all about understanding why things go viral. We will look at pandemics, revolutions, and internet-breaking videos as we try to understand what makes these things spread. If you like games that simulate global outbreaks, hearing first-hand accounts from people on the field, and learning about how the things you do could make you part of the next outbreak, join us during Winterim. And forward this to your friends for a chance to win a prize on the first day of class.
