"Some Re-Assembly Required: Restoration and Human Production in Images, Words and Bones" is the theme of the symposium, which is designed to explore reciprocal influences among the sciences, arts and humanities.
Keynote speakers will be novelist Leslie Forbes at 7 p.m. MST Thursday March 24, artist Rachel Berwick at 7 p.m. Friday March 25 and paleontologist Michael Novacek at 10 a.m. Saturday March 26. Those lectures will be held in the Gould Auditorium of the university's Marriott Library.
The three keynoters will appear jointly at the same location on Friday March 25 for a live broadcast of National Public Radio's "Science Friday" show moderated by Ira Flatow via radio hookup from New York City. Those attending the broadcast must be in Gould Auditorium no later than 12:30 p.m. MST for the "Science Friday" show, which will run from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. MST.
This is the third Symposium on Science & Literature sponsored by the university, and the third to have its keynote speakers appear on a live "Science Friday" broadcast. Other activities during the symposium include an installation of Berwick's art, panel discussions and a reading of Forbes' radio play "Humboldt's Last Word."
The symposium is free and open to the public, but space is limited so advance registration is encouraged.
