We think so! And it gets even more interesting when you put three University of Minnesota experts with distinct disciplinary perspectives together in the same room for an unscripted, free-flowing discussion.
Join us this fall for a special Petri Dish series of curiosity-driven conversations at the Bell Museum. We’ll explore topics relating to food in conjunction with the museum’s “Our Global Kitchen”exhibition.
Tickets includes admission to “Our Global Kitchen.” Doors open at 6 p.m. Come early to explore the exhibition and grab a drink at the cash bar. Then get ready for trivia and lively discussion starting at 7 p.m.
New diets pop up with predictable regularity, grabbing hold of the collective imagination and resulting in the ritual purging of suddenly suspect foods. But was there a time when we had a perfect diet? Is there a place where people eat ideally? There are myriad diets claiming they have answers to exactly these questions. Join us for a discussion about what science has to say about the role of evolution, the causes of the obesity epidemic and much more. Tickets available soon!*
*Please note: Tickets for the Petri Dish do not include admission to the Bell Museum. The museum is not open during the Petri Dish.
