Event Details

The Washington Area Secular Humanists in cooperation with the American Humanist Association will hold its annual banquet on February 22, 2014 at Phillips Seafood in Washington, DC. Please join us for an afternoon of dining and company with your fellow free-thinkers


WASH is proud to present our notable guest speaker, Dr. Briana Pobiner for this special Darwin Day event. Darwin Day is a global celebration of science and reason held on or around Feb. 12, the birthday anniversary of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin.
 
Briana PobinerDr. Briana Pobiner is a prehistoric archaeologist at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History Human Origins Program and an Associate Research Professor in the Center for the Advanced Study of Hominid Paleobiology at the George Washington University. Her research centers on the evolution of human diet (with a focus on meat-eating), but has included topics as diverse as cannibalism in the Cook Islands and chimpanzee carnivory. She has conducted fieldwork in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, and Indonesia. Briana was featured as one of Fox 5 DC's "offbeat experts" and recently interviewed on NPR's "The Splendid Table" about prehistoric human diet.
 
The "paleo diet" is currently in fashion -- but what do we really know about what our ancestors ate? Dr. Briana Pobiner will explore the evidence for different types of foods in ancient diets, starting from millions of years ago up to the wide variety of diets seen in people around the world today.

Organizer

Washington Area Secular Humanists

The Washington Area Secular Humanists (WASH) was incorporated in 1989 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational organization in Maryland. Our purpose is to promote scientific literacy and critical thinking, to provide a forum for humanists and others to explore humanist principles and how they relate to all aspects of human experience, and to study the significance of humanism throughout history. Secular humanists are distinguished by an emphasis on scientific methods of knowing, separation of church and state, and a commitment to the pursuit of humanist goals outside religious frameworks.
