The Reeder Scholars, a new intellectual residence community, invite the campus to participate in a discussion of the “Human Animal” 9 p.m. Tuesday in the back room of Gilbert’s.

Ice cream, fruit, and other food will be served at the event, which will be led by art major Danielle Schreier ’07 (New York, N.Y.).

In her discussion, Schreier will ask questions that pertain to issues such as the definition of “human,” what is unique and similar to humans and animals, and whether the fusion of human cells and animals is ethical. She offers this National Geographic article for reference.

Named for its Reeder Street residence, the Reeder Scholars program borrows its basic structure from the McKelvy House Scholars program – regularly holding discussions open to the campus and organizing activities both on and off campus – but its students are determined that the program have its own distinguishing characteristics.
