J.T. Scopes Lectures
The J.T. Scopes Lecture is named after John T. Scopes, the Tennessee science teacher involved in the infamous “Scopes Monkey Trial” who was charged and convicted for teaching evolution in a Dayton, TN high school in 1925. The “J. T. Scopes Lecture” series aims to highlight the work of high-profile scientists that speak truth to power and defend science. This distinguished lecture series was launched in 2022.
Our next Scopes Lecture will be during the 2023-2024 academic year.
