The Michigan Anthropology Colloquia Series: "Why Does the Modern Human Skull Look the Way It Does?"

"My talk will address two questions about the modern human skull: What explains the differences between modern humans and other closely related species? What explains the variation among modern human groups and individuals? These questions can be answered at different levels—I will focus on using novel quantitative approaches to gain insights into the evolutionary processes that underlie variation in skull shape and size. I will address these questions with examples from my research comparing modern humans to non-human primates, modern humans to Neandertals, and modern human foragers to farmers."
