THE MAKING OF . . . A NUMBER

THE GREAT DEBATE: NATURE VS. NURTURE



Monday, May 20, 2019 6:30PM
Gillian Theatre


Featuring: Professor Emma K. Adam and Professor Vijay Mittal, Northwestern University

It’s a question that has been pondered for ages: does “nature” or “nurture” wield the biggest influence? Join us in the Gillian Theatre as we welcome Professors Emma K. Adam and Vijay Mittal of Northwestern University to tackle the assumption that only one of these factors solely controls our development. Inspired by Writers Theatre’s production of A Number by Caryl Churchill, come listen to case studies that put forth arguments for both sides, analyze the data and draw your own conclusions as we attempt to unpack how both our DNA and our environment impact our lives.
