Event description

Description

The prevailing tendency to view alcohol merely as a ‘social problem’ or the popular notion that alcohol only serves to provide us with a ‘hedonic’ high, masks its importance in the social fabric of many human societies both past and present. To understand alcohol use as a complex social practice that has been exploited by humans for thousands of years requires cross-disciplinary insight from a wide range of science and humanities disciplines. This conference will examine the use of alcohol in the human lineage and our closest primate relatives, as well as its wider relationship to social contexts such as feasting, sacred rituals, and bonding.

Professor Robin Dunbar, University of Oxford
