Talking Evolution

26-28 September 2018


“Where is evolutionary thinking currently at? What advances to our understanding of evolutionary processes have been made? What gaps are there?”


The workshop “Talking evolution” offers the opportunity to present and discuss traditional evolutionary thinking in the light of findings from the fields of niche construction theory, extra-genetic inheritance, developmental bias and phenotypic plasticity.


The workshop will feature prominent speakers from all fields, targets young and established researchers currently working or planning on working in these fields, and encourages discussions in an openly structured timetable. Plenary speakers are: Paul Brakefield (Trinity College, UK), Luis-Miguel Chevin (CEFE, France), Troy Day (Queen’s University, Canada), Ilkka Kronholm (University of Jyväskylä, Finland), Kevin Laland (University of St Andrews, UK) & Sonia Sultan (Wesleyan University, USA).
