100 Global Minds
Date: Tuesday 23 February 2016
Venue: Lecture Hall
Gianluigi Ricuperati presents his recent book, 100 Global Minds, which introduces us to the world’s most innovative and inspiring thinkers and examines the scope and range of their influence. Using an algorithm developed by the Institute for Scientific Innovation in Turin, which signals names frequently referenced outside a primary field ofinterest, the author has brought together people--from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to Slavoj Zizek--who have traversed the boundaries of disciplines to become a ‘global’ thinker. Followed by a conversation with Shumon Basar.
Gianluigi Ricuperati is a writer, curator and director of Domus Academy, Milan. He is author of five books, a contributor to Il Sole 24 Ore, La Repubblica, 032c, Dazed and Confused and other publications. He is also founder of the cross-disciplinary research group Institute for Production of Wonder.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
