    2021 Nobel Prizes Awarded in Local Ceremonies

    Winners of the 2021 Nobel Prizes started receiving their awards on Monday in local ceremonies modified for pandemic times. Three of the winners are warning that climate change is the biggest threat the world faces yet they are still optimistic. This is the second year in a row that COVID-19 has altered the traditional formal banquet in Stockholm. Usually, it is attended by winners of the prizes in chemistry, physics, medicine, literature, and economics.

    The Nobel Peace Prize is separately awarded in Oslo, Norway. Abdulrazak Gurnah, a literature laureate, was the first to receive his prize in a lunchtime ceremony on Monday. Ambassador Mikaela Kumlin Granit said he was awarded the prize for “uncompromising and compassionate penetration of the effects of colonialism and the fate of the refugee in the gulf between cultures and continents.”

    Later in the day, Italian physics laureate Giorgio Parisi is set to receive his prize at a ceremony in Rome. As well as U.S.-based physics laureate Syukuro Manabe, chemistry laureate David W.C. MacMillan and economic sciences laureate Joshua D. Angrist will get their awards in Washington.
