Science on Tap: The Politics of Causes

Don Haider-Markel
Who is to blame for obesity or gun violence? When public policies are proposed regarding issues such as these, the topics quickly become politicized. These "politics of causes" are often rooted in our partisan predispositions. For this Science on Tap, political scientist Don Haider-Markel will discuss how the public thinks about causation when it comes to hot-button issues from gun violence to homosexuality to immigration. Science on Tap takes place at Free State Brewing Co. 636 Massachusetts St, Lawrence, KS 66044. No reservations. Arrive early for seating.
