Central Pennsylvania Forum for Religion and Science
The Central Pennsylvania Forum for Religion and Science, under the direction of Dr. Edward B. (“Ted”) Davis, Professor of the History of Science, sponsors a variety of events, all intended to help promote better understanding of religion and science–including medicine and social science–in this region. We continue the college’s established tradition of hosting speakers who represent diverse religious and disciplinary perspectives. Most events take place on our campus, but some are held in other locations.
All of our events are announced here. PLEASE BOOKMARK THIS PAGE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. Information about each event is also sent by email upon request. To add your name to our list, or to update your email address, contact Dr. Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of our events are open to the public—indeed, it is the people of central Pennsylvania whom we seek to serve. Most events are free; any exceptions will be clearly announced. Our budget comes entirely from contributions. If you wish to donate to the Forum, please ask Dr. Davis where to send your check.
