"Science and Religion with a Southern Accent: Scripture, Science, and Southern Identity in the Shadow of the Civil War"
Historian Monte Hampton will give a talk on Tuesday, Oct. 20, in Gailor Auditorium. The public is invited to the lecture, titled “Science and Religion with a Southern Accent: Scripture, Science, and Southern Identity in the Shadow of the Civil War.”
Hampton is a teaching associate professor at North Carolina State University. His interests focus on religion in the Southern U.S. during Reconstruction. His recent book, Storm of Words: Science, Religion, and Evolution in the Civil War Era, has received very positive reviews. The talk should appeal to anyone with an interest in the history of science, the American South, or the relationship between science and religion in the U.S.
The lecture is sponsored by the Department of History, the Environmental Studies Program, and the University Lectures Committee, with additional support from the Center for Religion and the Environment, the American Studies Program, and the School of Theology.
