Exploring the Meanings of Human Evolution: A Community Conversation

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,
co-chairs of the Smithsonian Institution’s Broader Social Impacts Committee, 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.
