Videos of the presentations from Darwin/Chicago 2009 — the University of Chicago's conference celebrating the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the Origin of Species — are now available on-line. Among the thirty-one speakers featured are NCSE executive director Eugenie C. Scott — asking "What Would Darwin Say to Today's Creationists?" — as well as NCSE Supporters Douglas J. Futuyma, Philip Kitcher, Richard Lewontin, Michael Ruse, and Elliott Sober. (The plenary addresses, by Lewontin, Ronald L. Numbers, and Marc Hauser, are now available, although they were not previously.) Also included on the conference's website are video interviews of thirteen of the speakers, including Scott, Lewontin, and Ruse; a gallery of photographs from the conference; and information about the University of Chicago's conference in 1959 celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Origin.
