The Primate Models for Behavioural Evolution Lab, in collaboration with St Hugh’s College, launches new Primate Conversations series for 2019/20

The research group based at the Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology (School of Anthropology & Museum Ethnography), which includes 17 researchers, and is led by St Hugh’s Associate Professor Susana Carvalho, Fellow in Palaeoanthropology, will host a series of ‘Primate Conversation’s around the topics of human evolution, primatology and conservation.

The seminar series is sponsored by St Hugh’s College, and seeks to increase the number of events in the University that are family friendly, while implementing new tools to increase the diversity in speakers/audience, as well as in question asking time after the seminars.

The first of these weekly seminars commences on Tuesday 15 October with a ‘Primates & Popcorn’ session, the screening of ‘Virunga’ – an incredible story about the brave efforts to protect mountain gorillas in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Professor Carvalho says “Everyone is welcome to these popular weekly events run during term time.  The Primate Conversations feature a diversity of speakers and aim to provide an informal, inclusive, child friendly setting where everyone can discuss ground-breaking research. We have some innovations this year to continue to increase the participation of all audiences in our discussions!”
