For readers in the Madison-to-Minneapolis region, on Thurs. March 27 I will be giving a talk at the University of Wisconson-Eau Claire. I will be covering much of the same ground that was featured on the two AAAS panels I appeared on earlier this month.
In the talk, not only will I be focusing on the need for new directions in communicating about evolution but also in the area of climate change (see this column for a preview on that latter topic.) In fact, there are many parallels between the two issues in how polarizing communication strategies keep us from making progress.
The talk starts at 7pm and will be in Phillips Hall 007. The event is sponsored by the Departments of English, Physics and Astronomy, the Earth Science Seminar Series, and the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. A campus map is here.
On March 10 and March 31, I will also be giving talks at UC Berkeley and Princeton University respectively. Details on those events will be forthcoming next week.
