I apologize for the short notice, but I only just found out myself; this Saturday (October 6) NYU is going to host an Evolutionary Anthropology conference in honor of the work of Cliff Jolly. Jolly, basing much of his work on baboons, proposed that seed-eating could have played a significant role in hominid evolution, and the conference will primarily deal with the hypotheses and studies of Jolly. The whole program starts at 9 AM and goes until about 5 PM (with a reception afterwards), and I’ll be headed in with one of my professors Jack Harris, although I don’t know how late I’ll stay as I’ll have to take the train back (if any one has any tips on how to get back to Penn station from NYU, I’d be much obliged). If you’re interested, the program and contact information (RSVP is required) is up online, and if any readers of this blog are going to attend please feel free to drop me a message; I’d be delighted to meet any readers/other bloggers who might be there.
I’m going, are you?4 10 2007
