Welcome!

We invite you to join us for this two-day conference hosted at the University of Stirling, UK, from 12th – 13th July 2018, on the theme:

Cultural complexity: What do we mean?”

The term ‘complexity’ is frequently used to describe behaviours & artefacts in the literature surrounding cultural evolution. However, exactly what we are trying to describe and capture with this description is not clear. Clarification of this issue is crucial in order to integrate different threads of research and provide a clearer understanding of how culture evolves.

This year’s Culture Conference aims to bring speakers from diverse areas of cultural research, such as developmental, comparative and theoretical modelling, to disentangle this topic and move toward a unified understanding of complexity. 

The conference is funded by a research grant from the European Research Council.
