AAAS DoSER: What Do Scientists Believe?

What Do Scientists Believe?
Religion Among Scientists and Implications for Public Perceptions

Please join us

for a lively discussion about the religious beliefs of scientists and the implications for dialogue between the scientific and religious communities. Rice University sociologist Elaine Howard Ecklund will describe her recent major study of scientists, and NPR religion correspondent Barbara Bradley Hagerty will consider the results in light of the media’s coverage of science and religion and her own experiences in engaging with the public.
