Stephanie Looking Up: Primatology and Positivity in Uganda
Start Date: Sep 11, 2020 - 10:00am
Location: Presented via Zoom
On Friday, September 11 at 10 am, Stephanie Fox, doctoral candidate in Evolutionary Anthropology presented her talk Stephanie Looking Up: Primatology and Positivity in Uganda as part of the Anthropology Colloquia Speaker Series.
Stephanie returned to New Mexico mid-pandemic from Uganda where she was collecting her dissertation data on social relationships among wild female chimpanzees. She is interested in why female chimps form social bonds, why some females form stronger relationships than others, and how these relationships change over the course of a female’s life. Ultimately, her goal is to help explain how social relationships among human women have been shaped during human evolution.
