  World Premiere: The Bat Man of Mexico

  Sunday, March 29, 3 pm

Now Mexico's most famous export, tequila, is at stake. Rodrigo's beloved lesser long-nosed bat is crucial to the liquor - pollinating the plants the drink is made from. To save both, Rodrigo must track the bats' epic migration across Mexico - braving hurricanes, snakes, Mayan tombs and seas of cockroaches. Rodrigo Medellin will be in attendace at this event.

    Darwin Day lecture: Darwin, Dostoevsky and Tolstoy
       Sunday, Feb. 15, 4 pm

       By Prof. Anna Berman (Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, McGill). In the second half of the nineteenth century Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution spread like wildfire across Europe.  Heated debates ensued as intellectuals were forced to reconsider deeply held beliefs about the world and man’s place in it.  In Russia, these debates seeped into the great novels of writers like Fyodor Dostoevsky and Leo Tolstoy.  This presentation explores the way Dostoevsky and Tolstoy responded to Darwin, casting light on the complicated relationship between science and literature in the nineteenth century. FREE, Everyone welcome. In Auditorium.
