Culture Evolves: Royal Society/British Academy conference

For those with interests in literature, science, culture, evolution…

Monday 28 – Wednesday 30 June 2010
Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, London SE1 8XX
Convenors: Professor Andrew Whiten FBA, Professor Robert Hinde FBA FRS,
Professor Chris Stringer FRS, and Professor Kevin Laland

The capacity for culture is a product of biological evolution – yet culture itself can also evolve, generating cultural phylogenies. This highly interdisciplinary British Academy/Royal Society conference will address new discoveries and controversies illuminating these phenomena, from the roots of culture in the animal kingdom to human, cultural evolutionary trees and the cognitive adaptations shaping our special cultural nature.

The meeting is free but registration is essential (see link above).
