Event description

Description

Join us for an cross-disciplinary public lecture titled "Beyond the nuclear family: an evolutionary perspective on childrearing" by Professor Rebecca Sear of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. This lecture will discuss how our species has evolved a cooperative form of childrearing, where women get help from others to raise their children, and the implications for support (or its lack) for childrearing on child and maternal health. The lecture will be followed by a wine reception and snacks.

This is a free event, open to any interested person from both academic and non-academic backgrounds.

This talk complements our research project 'Social support, maternal experience and infant feeding'. For more information please check the osf link.

The workshop is funded by a grant from the European Human Behaviour and Evolution Association and supported by UCL Anthropology.
