WRE with President Jane Clarke

Wolfson Research Event

The Wolfson Research Event is an 'intellectual box of chocolates', taking place in Spring since 2011.

WRE with President Jane Clarke

The 2019 Wolfson Research Event will be 26 April, 11.00-18.30

The Wolfson Research Event 2019 call for abstracts is now open!

Submissions are welcome from Wolfson College students on all research topics.

Please note that the abstract and eventual presentation should be suited to a multi-disciplinary audience, not just those in your specific field – this is a great way to practice communicating your research to the wider public!

There will be prizes awarded for the best oral and best poster presentation. Also, everyone that is selected to present their research will be invited to a free Formal Hall after the event.

Send your abstract submission via this online form.

The deadline for submission is 17.00 on Monday 3 December 2018. You will be informed about the outcome of your submission by Wednesday 16 January 2019 at the latest. 

There will also be a workshop in mid-November to help you plan your abstract. Anyone wanting to submit an abstract is strongly advised to attend.

Any questions on submissions should be directed to wre@wolfson.cam.ac.uk.  

Find out more on the WRE Facebook page.

Lunchtime Seminar - Towards a socially conscious evolutionary science of culture

27/02/2019 at 13.00

Attempts to apply evolutionary models and thinking to human societies have a dark past, ranging from Darwin's own characterisation of 'civilised' versus 'savage' races, to social Darwinism and eugenics, and the more recent efforts of some evolutionary psychologists to naturalise oppressive social stereotypes.
