On Bones and Genomes: What Can Science Tell Us About Being Human?

Praveen Sethupathy and Zeray Alemseged

Recent advances in science and technology have made great strides in addressing some of our deepest questions about being human. These advances help us to have a better understanding of who we are, where we came from, and what humanity's place in nature might be. But are there limits to what science can tell us about being human? And does religious belief have anything to contribute to answering such questions? Join us for a conversation between two world-class professors as they discuss what makes us human.

Registration is recommended, but not required. This event is free and open to the public.
