Hofstra University announces an interdisciplinary conference titled “Darwin’s Reach: A Celebration of Darwin’s Legacy across Academic Disciplines,” to be held March 12-14, 2009. Frans de Waal, a primatologist whose work develops philosophically-interesting implications, and paleontologist Niles Eldredge will be among the keynote speakers. 200-word abstracts are solicited for a June 16 deadline on any area of philosophy (or academic inquiry more broadly) connected with evolution, including ethics, politics, sex/gender, epistemology, metaphysics, language, philosophy of science, and so forth. The full Call for Papers with further information and submission instructions is available at http://www.hofstra.edu/darwinsreach.
Hofstra University is in Hempstead, New York, 20 miles east of Manhattan (and an easy 45-minute commuter-rail trip from Manhattan and Brooklyn). Philosophers are welcome to address any questions to Christopher.Eliot@hofstra.edu
