Title: Science Study Break - Bones
Author: Kappelman, John
Description: Dr. John Kappelman of the Department of Anthropology addressed the science in scenes from the popular FOX TV show Bones. Attendees saw a fascinating presentation on signs of tuberculosis in a skull, as a lead-in to viewing Bones and discussing what scientists can and cannot deduce from skeletal remains.About Science Study Break: Pop culture and the academy collide as Science Study Break features researchers from The University of Texas at Austin discussing the science reality in books, television and film. Past presentations have examined bioterrorism and its treatment in the Fox thriller “24,” artificial intelligence gone wild in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” the comic realities of Spider-Man and epidemiological models for the proliferation of zombies. Science Study Break takes place twice each semester.
