Can bird migrations foretell the future? Do phases of the moon hold sway over our lives? Are there sacred springs with curative powers? What is the best way to brew a love potion? In this interdisciplinary talk filled with tales of adventure, science journalist Matt Kaplan, author of The Science of Monsters and Science of the Magical, will explore the rich, lively, and surprising reality behind some of the magical objects, places, and ideas that infuse ancient and modern myths.

Daughters of Anatolia follows a Turkish family of nomadic goat herders as they travel ancient seasonal migration routes with their 350 animals, alternating between winters on the Mediterranean and summers in the Taurus Mountains. Producer/director Halé Sofia Schatz documents a lifestyle in transition—one that has roots in traditions dating to the twelfth century, but that now faces challenges from an increasingly urbanized world.
