TOPICS
--1) «Forensic Anthropology: Speaking for the Dead» — The field of forensic anthropology has been popularized by the famous TV show Bones. While fascinating, the depiction is quite unrealistic. Come see how a forensic anthropologist locates, learns from, and speaks for those that are no longer able to speak for themselves. But seriously…when do we get the Angelatron?! — Kristen Chew
--2) «A Contemporary Look at the Teachings of the Historical Buddha» — The Buddha taught, in his own words, 'Dukkha (suffering, stress, dissatisfaction with life) and the end of Dukkha' — or, the corollary 'Why you're not happy, and what you can do about it'. — Phillip Irwin
--3) «The Science of Communication» — Spoken language and communication is one of the most powerful tools humans have devised, but how does it work? Let's look at the physics and biology and see how they play into how speech is constructed. What separates us from animals? Spoken words, language? Maybe not. — Jai Burn
