|symposium: Why C(omp)ARE? Research across species and cultures to understand the human mind|
We would like to invite you to a two-day symposium “Why C(omp)ARE? Research across species and cultures to understand the human mind”, organized by Katja Liebal (FU Berlin) and Daniel Haun (Leipzig University). While the focus of the first day (6th November, at Freie Universität Berlin) is on the Cross-species perspectives on the human mind, the focus of the second day (7th November, at Leipzig University) is on Cross-cultural perspectives on the human mind.
Speaker and titles (final schedule to follow):
6th Nov: Cross-species perspectives on the human mind
Julia Fischer (Cognitive Ethology Lab, German Primate Center, Göttingen): How far have we come in understanding the evolution of the language faculty?
Daniel Haun (Early Child Development and Culture, Leipzig University): Why Psychology is incomplete without comparative perspective
Carel van Schaik (Anthropological Institute & Museum, Universität Zürich): How cooperative breeding helped to shape human psychology
Michael Tomasello (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig): Cooperation and human cognition
“Science to go”: we will organize transport by bus (from Berlin to Leipzig) for those who want to attend both days. The bus will leave in the evening around 6 pm and arrive in Leipzig approx. 8 pm. During transfer, speakers will answer questions of the participants, which they submitted earlier that day. Particularly for students and junior researchers, this is an opportunity to discuss some of their questions in a more informal setting with the speakers and other participants. Please note that seats are limited.
Heidi Keller (Universität Osnabrück, Hebrew University Jerusalem): Cultures of childhood
Carel van Schaik (Anthropological Institute & Museum, Universität Zürich): The evolution of cultural evolution
Andrea Bender (Department for Psychosocial Sciences, University of Bergen): tba
