Exploring the Meanings of Human Evolution: A Community Conversation led by Dr.Connie Bertka and Dr. Jim Miller, co-chairs of the Smithsonian Institution’s Broader Social Impacts Committee.
How do scientific discoveries about human origins relate to people’s personal understanding of the world and their place in it? Join Drs. Connie Bertka and Jim Miller, as they encourage a community conversation about human evolution that helps us to understand each other’s perspectives, to identify areas of common interest or concern, and to explore the variety of ways human evolution connects to personal meaning. They will be joined by Drs. Rick Potts and Briana Pobiner from the Smithsonian’s Human Origins Program.
