“Social Networks in Ancient Greece” Presented by Dr. Cline

Sunday, September 24, 2017 from 3-5PM

Social networks are an important factor for fostering creativity and innovation, back in ancient Greece and today. Such networks allow people to efficiently find the resources and partners they need and help new ideas catch on and spread. The ancient Greeks were remarkably innovative — what was their secret? What can we learn from them to make our own communities more creative? What do we know about innovation today that confirms that the Greeks had tapped into something important, how to make lasting changes and to invent technological solutions to social problems. Prof. Cline will share her ideas about what conditions made the Greeks so creative and innovative, focusing on their social networks and specific aspects of the Greek way of life.
