The Discussion Club provides a meeting place for casual discussion on broad topics of evolution and science in general. Participants choose topics for discussion by themselves. The main idea is to facilitate discussion between people from different fields to strengthen our understanding of evolution while having a good time. Find the date and reading material for the next meeting in the event list and join us. Everybody is welcome!
We meet every three weeks to discuss the chosen topic. Everybody is welcome to propose (usually three) the topics, by suggesting reading material, from which participants choose which to discuss. Reading material can be almost anything connected to evolution: an internet blog that intrigued you, an interesting new method that you encountered, a chapter in a book that you did not understand, or a draft of a manuscript that you are working on.
We always need new topics to discuss! Please get in contact with Marko Bračić (firstname.lastname@example.org) to propose reading material.
