Description
This program is in conjunction with the "History of Space Photography" exhibition in the GVSU Art Gallery through March 21.

Everything that exists has a history: each person, plant, animal and object, our planet, the entire universe. Each of these histories offers valuable insights, and collectively they reveal even more. Big History weaves evidence and perspectives from many scientific and historical disciplines into a single story - one that explores who we are, how we got here, how we are connected to everything around us, and where we may be heading.

In this lecture Professor Craig Benjamin shows how Big History examines these connected histories on very large scale, through a multidisciplinary approach that is focused on both the history of the non-human world, and on the major revolutions that have defined the human experience.

Open to the public with free admission. RSVP for this event: http://www.gvsu.edu/artgallery/module-event-rsvp.htm?eventId=0863DBC1-0DFB-F91A-63460E189FBD57B8
