SFI Presents “The Evolution of Human Social Behavior”
April 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The evolution of human social behavior
Biologists and social scientists rely on comparison to other species, and across human societies, to make sense of our species’ social behavior. In this talk, evolutionary anthropologist Laura Fortunatodiscusses the opportunities and challenges that arise in doing so, drawing on her work on variation in human family systems.
Laura Fortunato is Associate Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Oxford, and an External Professor at the Santa Fe
Institute. Her research aims to understand the evolution of human behavior, working at the interface of biology and anthropology.
SFI’s Community Lecture Series is presented at no cost to the public by the Santa Fe Institute, with additional support from the Lensic Performing Arts Center and the Santa Fe Reporter.
