Evolution remains a taboo and often misunderstood subject for much of the American South. Dr. Amanda Glaze studies this deeply rooted cultural attitude and its religious and societal influences. Her research centers on the intersections of science and society, specifically the acceptance and rejection of evolution in the Southeastern United States and the impact of the conflict between religion and evolution on science literacy. Join Dr. Glaze as she discusses her research on teaching and learning evolution in the South and hear the insightful stories she has collected along the way.
