Here is a sample of research from an evolutionary perspective that is taking place at BU. See the websites of individual EvoS faculty participants for additional examples. Many of the projects provide research opportunities for EvoS students.
This website attempts to establish Evolutionary Religious Studies (ERS) as a new field of scientific inquiry, including a model resarch project on conceptions of the afterlife from an evolutionary perspective. D.S. Wilson directs the project.
This website describes a general infrastructure for community-based research from an evolutionary perspective, which can faciliate a large number of focused research projects. D.S. Wilson directs the project.
This project will generate a novel perspective on human and social dynamics by introducing evolutionary principles and methodologies into the modeling of their complex behaviors, making a theoretical advancement from a traditional, individually-focused psychological or social science paradigm to a more dynamic, multilevel, evolutionary paradigm for collective social processes.
