Description

The Morton Collection at the Penn Museum

Dr. Janet Monge, Curator of Human Evolution: The First 200 Million Years, and Associate Curator of the Museum's Physical Anthropology Section, offers an introduction to a famous-and famously controversial-collection of human skulls housed in the Penn Museum. Amassed more than 150 years ago, the Morton Collection remains at the center of discussion about human races and the nature of bias in science.

Admission: Pay-what-you-want.
