Watkins’ Public Lecture to Focus on EvolutionFebruary 20, 2007 at 2:14 am | Posted in Events | Leave a comment
Dr. Massimo Pigluicci, a professor at SUNY-Stony Brook, is the Watkins Visiting professor and will be presenting at Wichita State twice next week.
This information about Dr. Pigluicci is taken directly from the flyer:
“Dr. Pigluicci studies the evolution of genotype-environment interactions and the role of constrains in evolutionary biology. He holds a doctorate in genetics (University of Ferrara, Italy), botany (University of Connecticut), and philosophy of science (University of Tennessee). In 2004, he was elected fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science for ‘fundamental studies of genotype by environmental interactions and for public defense of evolutionary biology from pseudo-scientific attack.'”
His public lecture, “Is Evolution a Logical Fallacy? (No)” will be presented on Monday, February 26th at 7 PM in room 209 of Hubbard Hall.
The scientific lecture is titled “Making Sense of Evolution: The Conceptual Foundations of Evolutionary Theory” and is scheduled for Tuesday, February 27th at 4PM in room 211 of Hubbard Hall.
It’s always immensely valuable to have anyone who studies evolution to present about it publicly, so please bring anyone interested in evolution to this presentation.
