Evolution Beyond Biology: A Symposium

April 26 All day

It has been famously said that “nothing in biology makes sense, except in the light of evolution,” and indeed evolution as a concept has been unifying for essentially the whole of biology. While applying evolutionary thinking continues to illuminate research in the biological sciences, the theory of evolution is also applicable beyond biological evolution. This symposium explores the applications of evolutionary thinking across different disciplines outside of biology — in artificial intelligence, linguistics, psychology, and cultural and historical studies. We expect that placing evolutionary thinking in the center will facilitate new insights, collaborations, tools, and directions.
