ISTB-1, Room 401
Campus: Tempe           
Cost: Free

Join Jeremy Koster of the University of Cincinnati for the latest in this exciting new colloquium series co-hosted by professors Joan Silk and Robert Boyd and sponsored by the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, the Institute of Human Origins and the Consortium for Biosocial Complex Systems.
Modern humans are an outlier in the natural world.  Our capacity for cultural accumulation has allowed us to rapidly adapt to a wider range of environments than any other creature. We live in larger and more cooperative societies than any animals except the social insects, and we depend heavily on complex technologies. The features that make humans so different from other animals evolved in the four or five million years since we shared a common ancestor with chimpanzees.
This new interdisciplinary colloquium series will illuminate the processes that were responsible for this transformation, and will bring researchers from a wide range of relevant disciplines to the ASU Tempe campus.
