12th Meeting of the Society for Anthropology (GfA)
18 to 22 September 2017
Geislingen a. d. Steige (Germany)
Homo Homini Lupus?
- Between Conflict and Cooperation -
„Against each Other“ and „Together“ – these are the extremes of a highly variable continuum of behaviour.
Both strategies are deeply rooted in human evolution and adaptation, both in terms of biology and culture.
Anthropology, bringing together approaches from the bio-, social- and cultural sciences to form a broad perspective on spatial and temporal variability, greatly contributes to understanding human behaviour between conflict and cooperation.
The 12th International Meeting of the Society of Anthropology focuses on this prominent socio-political topic. Case studies and theories from archaeological, forensic and historical research will complement the biological and ethological framework.
The scientific programme is open for all aspects of anthropology and human biology, including contributions from biology, ethology and the cultural sciences. Interdisciplinary presentations are welcome. Scientists with a special focus on the meeting's central theme will appear as invited speakers.
Contributions in English and German will be equally accepted. Abstracts are to be submitted in English and posters have to feature an English abstract.
