Joan Roughgarden, May 2 and 3

So I found out today that Joan Roughgarden, of Stanford's Department of Biological Sciences, will be visiting May 2 and 3 to give two lectures:

"Evolution's Rainbow: Diversity of Gender and Sexuality in Nature and People"
Monday, May 2, 2005
4:00 PM
Faculty Club
main dining room (free and open to public)

"Reproductive Social Behavior: Cooperative Games to Replace Sexual Selection"
Tuesday, May 3, 2005
12:30 PM
Hamilton Hall
Room 107 (EEOB seminar series)

That should be fun. I hope I can get out of ECE858 (scheduled to get out at 3:48) on Monday to make the first lecture, but the second lecture is the one I'm most interested in.

They recently had a feature on Joan Roughgarden in the Stanford alumni magazine - both about her work, and about her transition from being a man. It's interesting stuff on both fronts: http://www.stanfordalumni.org/news/magazine/2004/mayjun/features/roughgarden.html

Martin Nowak is coming next spring. :-D

I can't wait!!! I've got goosebumps just thinking about it.

How were they?

They were interesting, and yet also somewhat unfulfilling. I'll post about them shortly.
