This Fab, Free Online Talk Will Explore How Happiness Is Contagious

By Alex Landon April 7, 2020

Use self-isolation to learn How Kindness is Contagious with this incredible Fever Talk!

There’s been plenty floating around recently about how Shakespeare wrote King Lear and Macbeth during a plague, and how Newton’s theory of gravitation was developed whilst the great physicist was isolating at home. You certainly don’t need to pursue quite so lofty an ambition during the lockdown, but we’ve found an excellent way for you to keep your brain active in the meantime, as Fever Talks will be streaming a fascinating live talk at 7pm on Monday April 13th – and it’s completely free to attend!

I think it’s one you’ll be very into, as well. Dr David Hamilton, a renowned writer, educator, and organic chemist, will be delivering the talk, called How Kindness is Contagious – which really is the perfect antidote for a pandemic, isn’t it? Sketching out the science of happiness, and how our moods can be incredibly contagious, this uplifting lecture will have you feeling more upbeat in no time! It’s set to be a lovely little mood booster, and should keep you learning throughout self-isolation too. You can sign up to attend here.

The talk will be streamed directly to your home, at the convenient time of 7pm, and it’ll feature a Q&A session at the end to help you dive even further into this intriguing topic. It’s just the first of several thought-provoking talks that Fever will be streaming online, so keep an eye out for more coming soon!

Oh, and if you’re looking ahead to a time beyond the pandemic, don’t forget that Fever Talks will be taking place in cinemas and venues across Manchester this summer and autumn. Whether you’d like to learn about the secrets of serial killers, or figure out how to spot a liar, they’ll have you covered – and it’s something to look forward to in the meantime! You can see the full list of Fever Talks here.
