NIMBioS BioBalladeer Opens the Show

RB Morris, NIMBioS songwriter-in-residence for November, treated the audience at a recent seminar to his song, “That’s How Every Empire Falls.” The song fit nicely with the guest speaker’s topic about the rise of complex human societies. Peter Turchin, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology and mathematics at the University of Connecticut, was the NIMBioS Interdisciplinary Seminar speaker Nov. 23. Turchin’s field of research, “cliodynamics,” uses a dynamical systems approach to the study of history. The picture above left shows Turchin (left) and Morris (right). You can read more about the NIMBioS Songwriter-in-Residence program here. Morris heads into the studio to record his songs next week as his residency comes to a close.
