The University of Chicago’s Enhancing Life Project has brought together 35 scholars from around the world to theorize ways of making everybody’s lives better. Scholars come from disciplines like anthropology, theology, history and media studies; from places like Germany, Taiwan and Iraq. All of the project’s scholars will be presenting at the Enhancing Life Project’s 2017 capstone conference this weekend.

We hear more about the conference and the project from William Schweiker, a principal investigator with the Enhancing Life Project and a professor of Theological Ethics at the University of Chicago.
