As anticipation builds with the solar eclipse approaching this August, the College of Arts and Sciences at Appalachian State University will hold a panel discussion to examine the many interpretations of these events in history, from scientific to religious, and discuss the significance of an eclipse through the variety of disciplines that comprise the college. 
Shadows of Diverse Disciplines: Reflections on Solar Eclipses,” an interdisciplinary panel discussion, will take place on Wednesday, July 12, at 1 p.m. in Belk Library and Information Commons, Room 114. 

The panel will include Dr. Craig Caldwell, Department of History at Appalachian, Dr. Laura Ammon, Department of Philosophy and Religion, and Dr. Courtney McGahee, Department of Physics and Astronomy. It will be moderated by Dr. Clark Maddux, director of Watauga Residential College.

The goal of this panel, leading up to the actual solar event, will be to discuss how the different disciplines view and interpret eclipses through distinctions and commonalities. This event is free and open to the campus and community. For more about upcoming solar eclipse events on and off campus, visit
