Community Involvement & Representation(s) in Biological Anthropology
A Panel Discussion on April 23, 10:30 AM – 2 PM PDT
What do biological anthropologists owe to their research participants? How do we reckon with the biases that have characterized our field from its inception? The UCLA Biological Anthropology DEI Graduate Group, in collaboration with the UCLA Center for Behavior, Evolution, and Culture is pleased to present “Community Involvement and Representation(s) in Biological Anthropology” on 4/23 10:30 AM – 2 PM PDT. Over the course of two virtual panel discussions, we will explore these questions and contribute toward a more reflexive biological anthropology.
