Science v. Dogma: Biology Challenges the LDS Paradigm
Author and Historian Gregory A. Prince delivered the 2017 Sterling M. McMurrin Lecture on Religion in Culture.
Until the late 1960s, when the Stonewall Riots in New York City brought LGBT issues into the public square, the consensus among clinicians, scientists, legislators and religious leaders was that homosexuality was either an unfortunate choice that could be unchosen, or a disease that could—and must—be cured.
The “biology paradigm” calls for a reassessment.
The Tanner fellowship is one of the most sought-after fellowships on campus and in the nation, as it provides a unique opportunity for faculty and students to focus solely on their research while working within an interdisciplinary community.
Fellows appreciate the Center for the dynamic environment it provides and the invaluable critique and support they received from their colleagues.
Join us in welcoming the 2017-2018 Tanner Center research and teaching fellows.
