Once a week, Faculty, postdocs, and students interested in paleoanthropology meet to discuss articles of interest, speak with or listen to presentations by visiting colleagues, and give feedback to group members about talks, manuscripts, or proposals. Currently, "Paleo Group" meets Thursdays from 12:10-1:00 p.m. in 204 Young Hall (if you can't find us there, we're probably in 210 Young Hall). Please contact us if you would like to be added to the Paleo Group email list.
Early Humans Technology Group
The Early Humans Technology (EHT) reading group meets weekly to examine research on a range of topics from the use of tools by animal species to technologies used during the ice age. The EHT group meets Mondays from 10:00-11:00 a.m. in 205 Young Hall. More information is given here, on the Institute for Social Sciences website.
