Wednesday, Oct. 6 — Noon
Sadie’s Place in Kent Library

These are the issues raised by Atwood in her post-apocalyptic 2003 novel Oryx and Crake. They are as well, key issues of our contemporary world. Dr. Gathman and Dr. Raschke will examine the issues raised in Atwood’s novel and explore their plausibility. They will  also address the possibility or lack of possibilities of a dialogue between science and the humanities  and between  science and religion.
