Jerry to speak at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside

by Greg Mayer

As part of its Darwin 1809-1859-2009 commemoration of the bicentennial of Darwin’s birth and the sesquicentennial of the pJerry Coyneublication of the Origin, the University of Wisconsin–Parkside‘s Science Night series presents Prof. Jerry Coyne of the University of Chicago speaking on “Why Evolution Is True” at 7 PM on Wednesday, Sept. 9, in Greenquist Hall 103.  The event is free and open to the public, and sponsored by the University’s Committee on Lectures and Fine Arts, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Biological Sciences.  Parking is free after 6:30 PM. If you’re in southeastern Wisconsin or northern Illinois, we’re in Kenosha, and not hard to find or get to.

  1. Free parking? If I leave Massachusetts right now, I might make the lecture.

    Maybe Prof. Jerry Coyne will lecture near here some day soon.

  2. Jerry, if you get a chance to speak in the London area, I can promise you some free beer at least.

    I’m not sure we can match the Tuscaloosa fare, though we can surely find some pretty good Indian food.

    1. I’ll actually be speaking at the Royal Society Darwin meetings in London in November. Beer always welcome, and Indian food is a challenge: Chicago has the world’s best, I think, outside of India itself, where I’ve been five times! I used to love the Standard Indian Restaurant at Westbourne Grove, but don’t know if it’s still there.

  3. Greg didn’t mention how they lured me up there with promises of Kewpie Burgers, chocolate malts, and kringles!

  4. Professor, please stop over in Madison! I’m sure a speaking space can be arranged even at this late date, and attendance would likely be excellent!

  5. A fossil fish, Diplomystus dentatus, with no particular relation to Jerry’s talk, but a nice picture.

    The picture and Jerry no doubt have the property of “niceness” in common.
