Event in Brief: 'Journey of the Universe' Executive Producer Speaks

October 29, 2014

Film Screened

An executive producer of the Emmy Award-winning documentary “Journey of the Universe” spoke at Georgetown today as part of a film screening hosted by the School of Nursing & Health Studies and the university’s Environment Initiative.

Mary Evelyn Tucker, PhD, a historian of religions who is a senior lecturer and research scholar at Yale University, says a purpose of the documentary and related book is to help identity a “flourishing future for all life on the planet.”


Tucker, who is pictured at right, co-wrote the documentary with host and narrator Brian Thomas Swimme, PhD, a professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco.


‘Flourish Together’


Journey creates an integrating narrative of the development of the universe, Earth, and humans – one that inspires hope for a way in which Earth and its human civilizations can flourish together into the future,” Tucker notes in a press release about the film.

Laura Anderko, PhD, RN, the Robert and Kathleen Scanlon Chair in Values Based Health Care at NHS and a part of the Environment Initiative, introduced Tucker, who spoke in Lohrfink Auditorium.

Anderko says she was looking forward to hosting an event after learning about the film and “was doubly excited after watching it.”

Nursing alumna Sara Tucker (NHS’82), the executive producer’s sister-in-law and a member of the school’s Board of Advisors, helped organize this opportunity for Georgetown.
