The EvoS seminar series brings distinguished speakers and alumni to campus each semester to share their work on all aspects of humanity and the natural world from an evolutionary perspective. The seminars are open to the campus and local community.
While visiting campus, the speakers meet with faculty and researchers to share ideas and explore opportunities for collaboration. In many respects, the seminar series is the hub of EvoS, both as an educational program and a pathway for interdisciplinary research.
Every semester, a 2-credit course titled "Current Topics in Evolutionary Studies" (EVOS 451/ BIOL 680S) is based on the seminar series. Every week, students read scholarly articles and write a commentary to prepare for the seminar and discussion. This course is frequently rated among the students' best intellectual experiences at Binghamton.
EvoS Seminars are held on Mondays from 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm throughout the semester when classes are in session. The seminars are held in LH 14 (Lecture Hall) and are open to the campus and local community.
Intro lecture by Dr. Wilson is August 27, 2018. No class due to holidays on Sep 3 and 10. The Fall 2018 Seminar schedule is in progress.
