Studio Theatre
Saturday, July 6
10:30 am to 12 pm

The Disrupters
In partnership with CBC Radio’s Ideas, a five-part series that explores the roots of modern identity through the ideas of five people who flipped the table of conventional thought.

Darwin and After 
Saturday, July 6
Darwin’s ideas about evolution shifted our perspective on the place of humans in the world: we’re not so special, just another life form with a bigger brain and opposable thumbs. What’s been the impact of this depressing news?

Panellists:
Maydianne Andrade, Canada Research Chair in Integrative Behavioural Ecology at the University of Toronto
Adam Gopnik, New Yorker staff writer and author of books including, most recently, a defence of liberalism: A Thousand Small Sanities
Ivan Semeniuk, science reporter for The Globe and Mail and former news editor of the journal Nature
