Whether it’s an explanation from Richard Dawkins on who was actually the first Homo sapiens, or a discussion with Christopher Hitchens on the influence of religious ideology in science, FORA.tv contains a wealth of programming dedicated to one of the most fascinating, and often times controversial, subjects of our time: evolution. This weekend, we add yet another compelling event to our library.
Join us on Saturday, April 28 at 9am PST (noon EST) for The Female in Evolution– a daylong symposium hosted by the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. Based on research in paleoanthropology, behavioral science and hunter-gatherer anthropology funded by the Leakey Foundation, scientists will explain how the human female has been shaped by 50 million years of primate evolution.
Various presentations during the event will cover topics such as “Millions of Years of Moms” and “The Role of Prehistoric Mothers in the Evolution of Language” along with updates on current research from the field.
