January 12-13, 2024
At this major symposium on the wider implications of “human origins,” speakers will address topics including ancient DNA, comparative genomics, foundations of human sociality, and the cognitive differences that have allowed symbolic communications, language, and the development of technology. The conference will foreground Boundaries foundational themes: what distinguishes human beings, whether we are a steppingstone in a larger trajectory of evolutionary process, the role of technology in shaping the human future, and the implications of our increasing ability to extend and transcend our social and biological foundations.
