SOF Digital Discussion: The Drive to Love, Who We Choose, and Courtship in the Digital Age

May 19, 2020  • Society of Fellows

This conversation features Helen Fisher, biological anthropologist and renowned author, as she helps to elucidate the human phenomenon of love. Delving into the concept of monogamy, true love, lasting relationships, and the role of technology in romance, Fisher draws upon data collected from 45,000 single Americans and her fMRI brain scan studies to explain why she remains optimistic about relationships in our Digital Age – and especially in the hyper-digitized era of COVID-19, as social distancing and Zoom have upended any sense of relational normalcy.
