NCSE is now extending a special offer to libraries. Both because we are eager for libraries to maintain holdings of our journals, and because we are eager to make space in our storage facility, we are offering free copies of any or all of the back issues of Creation/Evolution (ISSN 0738-6001, nos. 1-39, 1980-1996), NCSE Reports (ISSN 1064-2358, vol. 9 through vol. 16, 1989-1996), and Reports of the NCSE (continuing both, ISSN 1064-2358, vol. 17 ongoing, 1997-present) to libraries.
NCSE now has a group on Facebook! By joining our group you'll be able to connect with other NCSE members and discuss the latest developments on evolution and creationism. Facebook is a social networking site that lets users post pictures, videos, and notes on their personal profiles and in groups dedicated to various topics and causes. If you aren't already a Facebook member, you'll have to join to see the group, but we hope this will provide a great place for our members to socialize and network.
NCSE is delighted to announce the addition of two new members to its staff.
Nick Matzke, Public Information Project Director, is leaving NCSE to begin a PhD program at the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. He came to NCSE in early 2004, planning to spend a year here before starting a PhD program; we feel fortunate to have had him around for two extra years.
NCSE's Education Project Director Louise Mead will be teaching a course on teaching evolution, on-line through Montana State University, from September 17 to December 7, 2007. The course description:
Philosopher Philip Kitcher appeared on the Center for Inquiry's podcast Point of Inquiry for July 13, 2007, discussing his latest book, Living with Darwin: Evolution, Design, and the Future of Faith (Oxford University Press, 2006) with host D. J. Grothe.
NCSE's executive director Eugenie C. Scott was awarded the Viktor Hamburger Outstanding Educator Prize for 2007 from the Society for Developmental Biology, during the First Pan American Congress in Developmental Biology, held June 16-20, 2007, in Cancun, Mexico. The prize, established in honor of Viktor Hamburger, a preeminent embryologist and developmental neuroscientist of his era, recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to developmental biology education.
For those who missed the BBC World Service's two-part program on creationism featuring NCSE's executive director Eugenie C. Scott and Henry M. Morris III of the Institute of Creation Research, it is now available on the Templeton-Cambridge Journalism Fellowships in Science & Religion website.
NCSE's Eugenie C. Scott and Nicholas J. Matzke's article "Biological design in science classrooms" (available in HTML and PDF formats) was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, one of the world's most-cited multidisciplinary scientific serials (vol. 104, suppl. 1; May 15, 2007).
