TITLE:

Cultural Evolution Seminar series: The Experimental Study of Human Cultural Evolution 

DESCRIPTION: This series features scholars from many disciplines with an interest in understanding the cultural (and biological) basis of human behavior. Human and social scientists, economists, psychologists, anthropologists, and many others, have traditionally looked at human behavior from disciplinary perspectives. The underlying motivation for this series is the conviction that the common goal of understanding humans is better achieved by sharing knowledge and methods across disciplines. Students and faculty from all disciplines are invited to attend. Speaker: Alex Mesoudi is a psychologist who studies cultural evolution, under the assumption that human culture constitutes a Darwinian evolutionary process, similar in key respects to the evolution of biological species. He uses a combination of laboratory experiments and theoretical models to simulate the processes of cultural evolution, with the aim of identifying the individual-level processes that generate the patterns and trends that are observed in human culture.
