URI Honors Colloquium

Sponsored by the University of Rhode Island Honors Program

Fall 2017 Honors Colloquium - Origins: Life, the Universe and Everything
Tuesday evenings, 7 p.m.
September 12, 2017 – December 5, 2017
Edwards Auditorium, URI Kingston campus
Free and open to the public

Where did we come from? How did the universe begin? How did galaxies, stars and planets form? How did life begin? How did intelligent, rational beings arise? And, from such humble beginnings, how did we develop a mind that can ask these big questions?

The topic of ‘origins’ will be explored in 2017 Honors Colloquium and will include speakers whose work pursues answers to these important questions. Please join us as we provide a forum to shed light on our current best understanding of humanity’s place in the cosmos.

Coordinators: Dawn Cardace, Joel Chandlee, Holly Dunsworth, Albert Kausch, and Alycia Moseley Austin
