The Binghamton Neighborhood Project expands EvoS in the direction of community-based research. Since evolution is fundamentally about organisms in relation to their environment, it is important to study humans from all walks of life, as they go about their daily lives. This kind of research can help to improve the quality of life in our region, in addition to its basic scientific import. Initiated in 2006, the BNP represents a unique “whole university/whole city” approach to community based research from a unified theoretical perspective. The symposium will include workshops on specific topics and a plenary talk by Dr. Robert Sampson, Department of Sociology, Harvard University, who is a world authority on urban research. Faculty and students interested in becoming involved in the BNP are strongly encouraged to attend.
