Competing Cosmologies, Effecting Worlds: Intersections of Science and Religion
Friday, January 29, 10 AM-5 PM
Breedlove Room, Perkins Library, Duke University
Open to the Public

Four speakers—two academics and two writers in science fiction/fantasy—will consider the way science and religion both work together and compete as theories of the universe in its totality. Each speaker will talk for forty-five minutes, followed by a short question-and-answer session; the event will culminate in a discussion period in which the audience and all four speakers can speak on questions that have come up throughout the day. Co-organized by Priscilla Wald (English, Duke University) and Barry Saunders (Department of Social Medicine, UNC), the symposium is sponsored by the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences in Berkeley, California, as well as the Department of Cultural Anthropology at Duke University, the Department of Religious Studies at UNC, and the Institute for the Arts and Humanities at UNC. Open to the public. Come for all or part of the day. Tell your friends!

  2. Unfortunately not! Though you’re not the first person to ask this.
