Developments in evolutionary biology and adjacent fields have produced calls for revision of the standard theory of evolution, although the issues involved remain hotly contested. This meeting will present these developments and arguments in a form that will encourage cross-disciplinary discussion and, in particular, involve the humanities and social sciences in order to provide further analytical perspectives and explore the social and philosophical implications.
The schedule of talks, biographies and abstracts can be found in the draft programme (PDF). Recorded audio of the talks will be available on this page after the event has taken place.
