Description

About

This event is in celebration of the relaunch of Biological Anthropology at the University of Oxford.

A discussion from across the field

What are the possible futures for Biological Anthropology?

What can Biological Anthropology offer to the future of humanity? 

The event brings together four leading researchers from across the field to explore the challenges faced by Biological Anthropology today.

Different visions will be presented through a series of short talks from distinguished scientists - ProfCharlotte Roberts (Archaeology, Durham University, President of BABAO), Dr Peter D. Walsh (Primatology, Epidemiology, Cambridge University) and Dr Rebecca Sear (Anthropology, Demography, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Co-founder of EHBEA). Following the short talks, ProfRobert A. Foley (Human Evolution, Cambridge University) will act as a discussant. Finally, the panel discussion will be opened to the audience.

Reception alongside the dinosaurs

The event will take place in the inspiring decor of the Oxford University Natural History Museum - where the significance of The Origin of Species was debated more than a century ago. The discussion will be followed by a drinks reception, in the main hall of the Museum, under the gaze of the dinosaurs.

The event is free (donations to support the project are welcome), but booking is advised. All welcome!
