Cambridge Professor to give lecture on human evolution in English in Santa Cruz

Internationally-renowned Palaeontologist Simon Conway Morris is giving a lecture on evolution in English (with simultaneous Spanish translation) in Santa Cruz this coming Friday, 7 October, at 7.30.
The lecture is being given in the Museum of Science and the Cosmos, and instead of looking at evolution from the usual random chance development perspective, will consider the rise of a species like human beings as an inevitability.
Simon Morris is Professor of Evolutionary Palaeobiology at Cambridge University’s Earth Sciences Department. He is a member of the Royal Society, and a recipient of the Walcott Medal, awarded by the National Academy of Sciences, and the Lyell medal, awarded by the Geological Society of London (both medals are highly prestigious).
This is a rare chance to hear an international academic level paper in Tenerife. Not of interest for everyone, granted, but for those who find this enthralling, it’s not a chance that will come around too often.
