Of the 468 fatalities that occurred in Great Smoky Mountains National Park between 1931 and 2013, most resulted from the victims’ imprudent judgment or willful choices. Brill will provide case studies from his new book Into the Mist and explore the role science can play in our understanding of how death stalks the mountains.
The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, April 6 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.
Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.
We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
