"Evangelical Christianity & Science"


(Open to Current UChicago Students Only)




Tuesday, October 26




From court battles over evolutionary biology taught in schools to current controversies over climate change and COVID-19 public health measures, many of the most contentious cultural and public policy divides between more religious and more secular Americans focus on the questions of science. In this seminar, we will explore the underlying issues beneath such divides and ask whether science and conservative religion will find more integration or more mutual skepticism in the decades ahead.



Special Guest: Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health



Pritzker Fellows seminars are off the record and open to current UChicago students only. Seating in the IOP Living Room is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.



This convening is open to all students who are compliant with UChicago vaccination requirements and, because of ongoing health risks, particularly to the unvaccinated, participants are expected to adopt the risk mitigation measures (masking and social distancing, etc.) appropriate to their vaccination status as advised by public health officials or to their individual vulnerabilities as advised by a medical professional. Public convening may not be safe for all and carries a risk for contracting COVID-19, particularly for those unvaccinated. Participants will not know the vaccination status of others and should follow appropriate risk mitigation measures.
