Dysoc/NIMBioS Webinar Series on Cultural Evolution
The Center for the Dynamics of Social Complexity and the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis are happy to announce a series of free webinars on cultural evolution.


Register once for the entire series - you will receive a reminder before each webinar.

This series is one of the outputs of a grant "Dynamic Models for Basic Theory and Applications in Cultural Evolution" funded by the John Templeton Foundation (PIs Sergey Gavrilets and Peter J Richerson) aiming to promote the Cultural Evolution Society. The grant has supported the development of online teaching modules on cultural evolution. Five modules have been completed and are currently available at http://www.dysoc.org/cesmodules. The modules were selected after an international competition organized by the CES Working Group for Education and Outreach composed of Drs. Louise Barrett (University of Lethbridge), Sergey Gavrilets (UT Knoxvlle), Russel Genet (California Polytechnic State University), Patricia Izar (University of San Paolo), Luke Matthews (RAND Corporation), and Peter J. Richerson (UC Davis).

The webinar series includes live presentations by lead designers of the five completed modules, an opening lecture by the first President of the CES and the lead PI on the proposal Peter J. Richerson (UC Davis), and a lecture by CES Working Group member Patricia Izar (University of San Paolo).

There are also invited lectures by Drs. Peter Turchin (Complexity Hub Science Vienna) and Ruth Mace (University College London). Besides running their research programs, Drs. Turchin and Mace are the founding editors of two important journals in the field of cultural evolution: Cliodynamics: The Journal of Quantitative History and Cultural Evolution and Evolutionary Human Sciences, respectively.
