Check this link for more details on the ASA faith/science conference and registration when it opens.
The American Scientific Affiliation (ASA) annual faith/science conference is coming up July 19-22. The Emerging Scholars Network (ESN) and ASA have partnered to expand student/early career presence greatly in the last few years, and this time we would love to connect with even more emerging scholars and more experienced mentors. Previous early career activities have included a webcomics breakfast, a lunch with Christianity Today science editor Rebecca Randall, and a meal with a scientist who helped to equip the Mars Rover. This year’s theme is Exploring Creation. Here are some highlights:
- The ESN/ASA Student and Early Career Track
- Student/postdoc scholarships
- Chicago field trips
We’ll keep you posted on further details. In the meantime, enjoy the 2018 ASA photos. If you scroll down, you’ll find ESN science writer Andy Walsh, some volleyball and softball action shots, and Francis Collins playing guitar. As a bonus, look for a video of last year’s talk by Francis Collins at the ASA website.
