Emory University and Georgia Tech partner up for symposium discussing religion, science and future of life
The Leadership and Multifaith Program (LAMP) will host its fourth annual symposium on Feb. 17, focusing on the future of life on earth and beyond.
A collaborative partnership between Emory University’s Candler School of Theology and Georgia Tech’s Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, LAMP’s symposium aims to generate a “multifaith discussion among scholars, clergy, community leaders and students about science, spirituality and the future of life on earth and elsewhere,” according to an Emory University press release.
Speakers will address the theme from diverse perspectives, including cognitive science, religious studies, ecology, ecotheology, ethics and astrobiology. Arri Eisen, a professor of pedagogy in Emory’s Department of Biology and a faculty member at Emory’s Center for Ethics, will deliver the keynote address.
“Religious and Scientific Perspectives on the Future of Life” will be held at the Candler School of Theology on Saturday, Feb. 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required by Feb. 6 at 5 p.m. Register here.
