Exhibit Trip:  "RACE: Are We So Different?"

Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013

ECHO Center in Burlington

The Scott Center for Spiritual and Religious Life and the Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity will co-sponsor a trip to the ECHO Center in Burlington on Thursday, January 24, to see the exhibit, “RACE: Are We So Different?”

From the ECHO website:  Developed by the American Anthropological Association in collaboration with the Science Museum of Minnesota, RACE: Are We So Different? is the first nationally traveling exhibition to tell the stories of race from the biological, cultural, and historical points of view. Combining these perspectives offers an unprecedented look at race and racism in the United States.  The exhibition brings together the everyday experience of living with race, its history as an idea, the role of science in that history, and the findings of contemporary science that are challenging its foundations.

The cost of transportation and admission will be covered for students.

Mini-vans will leave from Adirondack Circle at 11:00 a.m. and will be back in Middlebury by 3:30 p.m.

Space is limited.  Please RSVP to Ellen McKay at the Scott Center, emckay@middlebury.edu.
