Date: Tuesday, June 12
Time: 7:00-8:45p

Professor Sarkar will discuss the social role of biologists, from the prevention of the use of speculative ideologically loaded theories in framing social policy (for instance, human sociobiology and evolutionary psychology), to the abuse of science by Intelligent Design creationists.
