Evolution of Social Networks and Social Behaviors
480 South Broad Street, Philadelphia
Get a glimpse into the innovative and impactful research taking place at Penn Arts & Sciences at the Penn Science and Lightbulb Cafes. The lecture series is free and open to the public and takes place in Center City at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre.
The structure of a society determines who gets to interact with whom, and in what relation, resulting in networks of social connections. These social networks play a very important role in the ecology and evolution of all animals, very much including humans. Erol Akçay will talk about how evolution shapes these social networks in animals and how social networks co-evolve with behaviors.
