On behalf of Maine Humanities Council:

Why Darwin Matters program:  Join the Maine Humanities Council on Sat., Nov.15, at University of New England in Portland, for the Dorothy Schwartz Forum on Art, Science, and the Humanities: Why Darwin Matters. This will be a unique opportunity to trace links, actual and potential, between the traditional arts and humanities and the field of evolutionary biology. Combining text-based humanities with the visual arts, the performing arts, science, technology, and popular culture, we'll take a deep and varied look at the life and work of Charles Darwin, one of the most influential thinkers in human history. We will offer free admission to 15 students (K-12 and/or college students) and a discounted rate of $15 for up to 20 K-12 educators on a first come, first served basis. CEUs will also be available.
