ABC Workshop: The evolution of emotions

09July2018 10:00 - 13:00


What are the functions of emotions? How and why did they evolve? And what can we learn from studying how we communicate our emotions?

In this workshop, a series of distinguished scholars will address these and related questions. The speakers are known for combining anthropological, psychological, and biological theories and methods; an integrative perspective on the evolution of emotions will be a central part of this workshop.

You are cordially invited to join us for a morning of inspiring talks!
