THIS EVENT IS IN THE PAST!
Lecture: 'The Wild Life Of Our Bodies' With Robert Dunn
Robert Dunn, a biologist and author of "The Wildlife of our Bodies," will discuss how, despite our efforts to scrub nature off our bodies, a host of species still cling to us and always will. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing.
As Dunn observes, we evolved in “a wilderness of parasites, mutualists and pathogens,” and our attempts to create a sterile environment could actually make us sicker.
Dunn’s lecture will discuss wild species and the influence they have on our well-being and the world.
