SciComm Lunch & Learn: Science Engagement with (and within) Faith Communities
The Duke Science & Society Initiative’s “SciComm Lunch-and-Learn” series presents:
Science Engagement with (and within) Faith Communities
Wednesday, October 20, 2021, 12pm-1pm ET via Zoom
Dr. Rob O’Malley, AAAS DoSER Project Director
As we navigate a global pandemic, confront the realities of climate change, attempt to reckon with systemic racism and oppression, and face myriad other scientific and societal challenges, constructive and impactful engagement between scientific and religious/faith-based communities is more important than ever. The Dialogue on Science, Ethics and Religion (DoSER), a program of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), has been working to foster constructive relationships and collaborative activities in this domain since 1995. In our October “SciComm Lunch-and-Learn”, Dr. Rob O’Malley (DoSER Project Director) will provide a background for and overview of recent DoSER activities, share some key insights and suggested best practices for scientists and science communicators, and facilitate discussion with attendees around their own experiences, ideas and questions related to science engagement with and within faith communities.
This event is free, but advanced RSVP is required. More info and RSVP here.
SciComm Lunch-and-Learn is organized and sponsored by the Duke Initiative for Science & Society.
