  • April 4: "Exploring Dangerous Places" with Ella Al-Shamahi, 7:00 p.m. at Kingsbury Hall, SLC. Event by Natural History Museum of Utah: "Ella Al-Shamahi is a National Geographic Explorer, paleoanthropologist, evolutionary biologist, stand-up comic, TV personality, and author of The Handshake. She will present NHMU's 2023 Lecture Series keynote talk 'Exploring Dangerous Places' at 7 p.m. on April 4 at Kingsbury Hall. Al-Shamahi specializes in Neanderthals, caves, and research in hostile, disputed, and dangerous territories. Her expected challenges of expeditions and cave excavations are often compounded with the avoidance of landmines or demand for disguises, among other risks. She almost exclusively works in places where it is hard to get insurance, such as Iraq, Yemen, Nagorno-Karabakh, and places she can't publicly admit to. Yet Al-Shamahi knows the risks are worthwhile to overcome what she describes as science's "geography problem," given that so much of the planet’s scientific potential is hidden away in regions off limits to most scientists. Tickets for the in-person lecture at Kingsbury Hall are $20 for general admission and $10 for University of Utah faculty, staff, and students with an active UID.
