How I Write: David Sloan Wilson
Time:
4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Location:
SL 212
Description:
The Writing Initiative’s How I Write series presents David Sloan Wilson, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Biology and Anthropology and president, Evolution Institute, on the occasion of the publication of his new book, “This View of Life” (Pantheon). The How I Write series presents Binghamton faculty in conversation with Robert Danberg, PhD, coordinator of campus-wide writing support, about the faculty member’s writing life. “This View of Life: Completing the Darwinian Revolution” is Wilson's third book written for a general audience. He argues that the Darwinian revolution will not be complete until it makes sense of everything associated with the words "human," "culture," and "policy" in addition to the word "biology."

NPR's Richard Harris on the Need for Rigor in Research
Time:
7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Location:
AM-189 (Admissions Building)
Description:
Richard Harris, a science writer who has been reporting on NPR’s flagship news programs for more than 30 years, will give a talk inspired by his most recent book, titled "Rigor Mortis: How Sloppy Science Creates Worthless Cures, Crushes Hope, and Wastes Billions." We rely on biomedical research for new treatments and cures. But this critical enterprise is not in the best of health itself, Harris says. Scientists are often unable to repeat experiments that other researchers have carried out. "Rigor Mortis" takes a hard look at these problems and explores solutions.
