Exploring Human Origins: What Does It Mean To Be Human?
Guest Lecturer Dr. Rick Potts, Smithsonian Institute
How can scientific discoveries on human evolution connect with larger understandings of what it means to be human? Join Dr. Rick Potts, paleoanthropologist and curator of the traveling exhibit, as he explores the main themes and messages of the traveling exhibit in a program for the general public. The talk and following conversation will explore how fossils, archeological remains, and genetic studies shed light on our connection with the natural world and the origins of sharing, caring, and innovation.
The talk will include a tour of the exhibit. Refreshments will be served.
