The Journey of the Universe, Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim
Visiting professor this fall in Princeton, Mary Evelyn Tucker is Professor of World Religions and Ecology at Yale University.  She is co-author of a seminal book and Emmy Award-Winning film shown on PBS, Journey of the Universe.  As a member of the Interfaith Partnership for the Environment at the United Nations since 1986, she is co-editor of books on ecological views of Buddhism, Confucianism, and Hinduism.  Her remarks will weave a tapestry that draws together scientific discoveries in astronomy, geology, biology, ecology, and biodiversity with humanistic insights.  From the Big Bang to the epic impact humans have on the planet today, this is the chance to ask one of the world’s foremost thinkers your most profound questions about the nature of the universe.
