Gerhart and Russell to speak at LeMoyne

Mary Gerhart, HWS professor emerita of religious studies; and Allan Russell, HWS professor emeritus of physics, will offer a bidisciplinary presentation, “A Scientist and a Theologian in Dialogue,” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 4 in the Sanzone Center at LeMoyne College in Syracuse.

They have collaborated on the topic of science and religion for 30 years and have taught several courses on the subject. They also have co-authored two books on science and religion — “Metaphoric Process: The Creation of Scientific and Religious Understanding,” and “New Maps for Old: Explorations in Science and Religion.” They are now finishing a third book, which will be the focus of this presentation.

Dr. Sherilyn Smith, associate professor of biology at Le Moyne College, will offer a response; and Dr. Nancy Ring, interim director of the Sanzone Center, will serve as moderator.
