Heads Up! How and Why the Amazing Human Head Evolved the Way It Is - Free Lecture
January 27, 2011
Why does the human head look the way it does? Daniel Lieberman, Professor of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard, has devoted more than 20 years to asking how and why natural selection transformed ape heads into human heads. Based on topics from his new book, The Evolution of the Human Head, Lieberman will explore how heads work, evolved, and why the human head is special. His answers have widespread ramifications for how we think about human evolution and the evolution of complex structures in other organisms.
