OLLI FREE FRIDAY

Where
100 Thomas Green Boulevard, Clemson [ Map ]
Description
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Clemson University (OLLI) is offering new, free programs open to the public this fall. Seminars feature talks on the concept of wonder and awe as well as a look at forensic anthropology and what can be learned from human skeletons. These programs will be held at the Charles K. Cheezem Education center, located in Patrick Square at 100 Thomas Green Boulevard, Clemson.

On Sept. 22 at 11:00 a.m., Reverend Bruce Booher, retired Lutheran pastor, will discuss the concepts of "wonder" and "awe." In this lively session, participants will explore new ways to experience awe. There will also be opportunities for participants to share times when they stood in awe and wonder before the marvels of creation. Revered Booher attended undergrad at Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he studied astronomy and physics, and is an ordained pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. He now spends his time leading workshops on faith and science.

On Oct 16 at 11:00 a.m., Dr. Katherine Weisensee, an associate professor within the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Clemson University, leads a seminar on forensic anthropology. The human skeleton provides a record of a person's life, and this presentation provides an overview of what can be learned about people from looking at their skeletal remains as well as hands-on examples of skeletal variation.

For more information about either of these seminars, contact Julie Vidotto at jvidott@clemson.edu or 864-633-5244.
