Darwin turns 102 202 next weekend, and I'll be celebrating by giving the Provost's Lecture at Stony Brook University out on Long Island on Friday, February 11. It's a fitting place to do so, seeing as it's where so many evolutionary biologists are based--not to mention the fact that it was where the great George Williams worked until passing away last year. In my lecture I'll be talking about the ways Williams transformed Darwin's legacy in so many ways--by asking deceptively simple questions such as why we have sex and why we get sick. Here are the details: When: Friday, February 11, 7:30 pm Where: Student Activities Center Auditorium, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY (pdf map of campus) More information here.
