Whither Creationism After Kitzmiller?

Featuring: 
Eugenie C. Scott, et al
Date: 
November 20, 2008
Location: 
San Francisco Hilton and Towers, San Francisco, California

Participants include Barbara Forrest, Raymond Eve, Debra Walker, Lawrence Lerner, Jason Wiles, and Richard Katskee. The moderator is NCSE Executive Director Eugenie C. Scott. The panelists in this forum will discuss the future of antievolutionism in the United States in the wake of the Kitzmiller decision, with especial attention to recent developments, such as the disarray of the intelligent design movement, the apparent resurgence of young-earth creationism, and the increasing focus on martyrology in the antievolution movement, and to efforts on the part of the scientific and educational communities to understand and combat them.

Panelists will include scholars who study antievolutionism from anthropological, philosophical, and educational perspectives, as well as one of the lawyers for the plaintiffs in Kitzmiller v. Dover and an archaeologist who serves on a county board of education and was recently involved in a state-level controversy over evolution education.
