Location: 210 Robeson Hall
Scholars have often argued that science and religion are in conflict and that the rise of science leads to the downfall of religion. Prof. Elaine Howard Ecklund (Rice University) sheds new light on this old debate, marshaling 15 years of sociological data to argue that now, more than ever, scientific and religious communities need to work together. And she offers perspective on how they can.
Elaine Howard Ecklund is the Herbert S. Autrey Chair in Social Sciences, Professor of Sociology, and Director of the Religion and Public Life Program at Rice University. A recently published book is Why Science and Faith Need Each Other: Eight Shared Values That Move Us Beyond Fear (2020).
