People ask us if we are available for "talks." We are!

Margaret Boone Rappaport and Chris Corbally, SJ
Presentations are usually in our main fields of astronomy and anthropology, but also in interdisciplinary studies and some unique combinations of our two disciplines, for example: our evolution dialogues; the origins of modern thinking; human uniqueness and distinctiveness; Space Science and Astronomy Scripts; the tension and growing accord between science and religion; and various takes on science, art, and religion - including prehistoric art.

Here are some formats that we have found useful in the past. Contact us for rates, which tend to be on a sliding scale.

The Human Sentience Project offers three types of training packages for different types of audiences. See examples of past training events on our Speaking Events Schedule web page.

(1)  The Seminar 

The Seminar is for professionals (especially mental health professionals), and lasts for a half-day (3 to 4 hours). It is available for Continuing Education Credit. Currently available module: “The Origins of the Modern Mind.”

(2)  The Workshop 

The Workshop is for secondary school science teachers who want to learn to use Space Science and Astronomy Skits as part of a high school or middle school science curriculum. Instruction and practicum cover a single day. For more information, click the Astronomy Skits Program web page, and for available Skits and science lesson modules, click Contact Us.

(3)  The Presentation

The Presentation is primarily for college students. It includes 7 to 12 available “Evolution Dialogues” and "Dialogues on Human Uniqueness," chosen by the school. These oral Dialogues are on topics in stellar evolution, biological evolution, human distinctiveness, and/or the relationship between science and religion. The Dialogues are followed by question-and-answer periods. The Presentation lasts one to two hours.

Presentations are also available for local science and astronomy clubs, and may include Skits and/or Dialogues, at the option of the host.

A special Presentation on "The Prehistory of Artistic Thinking" is available for practitioners, instructors, students, and clubs.
