Wenner-Gren Symposium #150
All anthropologists, cultural, biological, archaeological, primatological, and evolutionary, are interested in why humans do what they do. In past decades, anthropologists, and particularly those in North America, mainly worked across disciplines drawing on many applications of evolutionary, economic, and cultural theory: control of energy and cultural evolution, cross-cultural comparisons to derive scientific principles, multilinear evolution, specific and general cultural evolution, cultural ecology, and formalist and substantivist economics. The goal of this conference is to assemble researchers working across sub-fields and theoretical orientations and invite them to present their work in the context of history, niche construction, social institutions and the selective landscape.
This symposium is not open to the public.
