Associate Professor of Physics Aileen O'Donoghue is among the scholars who will speak at "Monuments to Science and Faith," the 20th Annual Symposium of the Monuments Conservancy, to be held March 19 at the Time & Life Building in New York City.

Scholars in astronomy, paleoanthropology, physics, biology, chemistry, philosophy, education and art history will gather to explore the relationship between science and faith. Topics will include the controversy surrounding evolution and "divine design," the origin of the spiritual sense and whether faith and reason are incompatible.

The symposium program states that O'Donoghue "reflects on doubt, faith and a life in science. She describes her journey from atheism back to the Catholicism of her childhood, revealing that the God she now believes in and the place of the Church in her life is very different from what they would have been without her study of science."
