THE UMBC HUMANITIES FORUM PRESENTS G. RICKEY WELCH UMBC DEAN OF ARTS AND SCIENCES

Baltimore, MD--The UMBC Humanities Forum presents a free lecture by Dr. G. Rickey Welch, UMBC Dean of Arts and Sciences, on "Artscience in the New Millennium: Observer-Created Reality and Scientific Theory." The free lecture will be held at 4 pm on Wednesday, September 24 in the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery.

Welch will discuss the differences and commonalities between the sciences and the arts in perspectives on nature, as well as the role of the human participant in shaping world views. He will examine the current philosophical thought on unified world views as we approach the millennium. A theoretical biophysicist, Welch was recently elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is the former dean of graduate studies and professor of biological sciences at the University of New Orleans, where he won many university- and statewide administrator of the year awards.
