"Continuing the Conversation" is an interdisciplinary panel discussion featuring three MSU professors: Dr. Elizabeth Burroughs (Mathematical Sciences), Dr. Gretchen Minton (English), and Dr. Shannon Willoughby (Physics), who will address questions inspired by Life of Galileo, the Bertolt Brecht play recently presented by Bozeman Actors Theatre in conjunction with the Department of English. Why did Galileo's discoveries threaten the status quo of the day? What kinds of mathematical and philosophical questions threaten today's status quo? What is the purpose of exploring such concepts in a play?
