General Meeting – WSU’s Dr. Michael Allen
June 2, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Dr. Michael Allen, Senior Instructor of Physics and Astronomy, WSU: “Using literature in a science classroom: Brecht’s ‘Life of Galileo'”.
From Dr. Allen:
“Brecht’s play is a work of historical fiction, covering the last two decades of Galileo’s creative and tumultuous life. The work helps my students to uncover some of the scientific and social issues in Galileo’s time, many of which are relevant today. As part of my talk we will watch a scene or two and see what we can learn.”
