Department of Anthropology Colloquium
The Myth of Human Cooperation as a "Huge Anomaly" 
Frans de Waal
, Emory University
4:00 pm - ANT 303

One day, humans were as selfish and unaltruistic as the rest of the animal kingdom. The next, we were actually the only altruists, and the only truly cooperative species. We had not regular reciprocity, but strong reciprocity. We were "super cooperators." Behavioral economists called human cooperation a “huge anomaly.” We were not just biologically altruistic, but genuinely so. We were the only ones who cared about the welfare of others, with empathy, and the only ones with joint intentionality.
But if true, how come our best evolutionary theories about cooperation and altruism derive from animal behavior? I will argue that this whole movement to elevate human cooperation above the rest is built on sand. There are indeed a few differences, but I will discuss empathy, cooperation, partner choice, sense of fairness, and reciprocity in other species, enough to make the point of continuity in all respects.

Dr. Frans B. M. de Waal is a Dutch/American biologist and primatologist known for his work on the behavior and social cognition of primates. His scientific work has been published in journals such as Science, Nature, Scientific American, and outlets specialized in animal behavior. His popular books - translated into over twenty languages - have made him one of the world's most visible primatologists. His latest book is Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? (Norton, 2016). De Waal is C. H. Candler Professor in Psychology and Director of the Living Links Center at Emory University, and Distinguished Professor at Utrecht University. He has been elected to the (US) National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences. In 2007, he was selected by Time as one of The Worlds’ 100 Most Influential People Today.

The Evolutionary Logic of Self-deception - and its Implications for Everyday Life
Dr. Robert Trivers, Professor of Anthropology and Biological Sciences, Rutgers University
4:00 pm - White Hall 206

Self-deception evolved in the service of deceit, the better to hide it from others. This includes social psychology and immunology of self-deception as well as its interaction with music and humor. Many human disasters — from airplane crashes to stupid and misguided wars — are partly or largely the   result of self-deception. The internet has greatly expanded opportunities for deception and theft, while phone cameras have given the lie to police shootings of innocent, unarmed people. We can fight our own self-deception but it is not easy.

As a scientist I was eager to contribute to building social theory based on natural selection, because a scientific system of social theory must, by logic be based on natural selection, and getting the foundations correct would have important implications for understanding our own psyches and social systems. A general system of logic that applies to all creatures also vastly extends the range of relevant evidence.

Department of Anthropology Colloquium
Searching for the origins of our expanding in-group
Dan Hruschka, University of Arizona (PhD Emory Anthropology, 2006)
4:00 pm - ANT 303

Humans exhibit massive diversity in how they classify individuals as insiders and outsiders, and this can profoundly shape how they treat others.  In the last two centuries in particular, social scientists have documented a steady expansion of psychological in-groups, as people identify with, tolerate, and behave altruistically toward a larger set of humanity.   The origins of this expanding in-group have inspired considerable theoretical debate.  In this talk, I outline current explanations for this phenomenon and describe our research group’s efforts to assess these different accounts using both large-scale comparative research and in-depth fieldwork and experimental studies in rural Bangladesh.

Department of Anthropology Colloquium
Graduate Student SymposiumReflections on Fieldwork: Challenges and Rewards
Speakers will be Suma Ikeuchi, Amanda Mummert, and Grace Veatch - Department of Anthropology, Emory University
4:00 pm - ANT 206

As one of the most commonly shared experiences among anthropologists, fieldwork is very rarely discussed. While findings are found in multiple platforms, ranging from peer-reviewed articles to vivid photography, the awkward and unnatural challenges that enable their production are often left bracketed. Promoting platforms for reflexivity, this graduate symposium intends to explore how fieldwork has shaped the personal and intellectual trajectories of 3-4 scholars. Topics inclusive within this exploration include, among other things, (i) how personal characteristics of the anthropologist (e.g., sex/gender) has shaped their project and fieldwork experience; (ii) how professional and personal relationships configure into fieldwork; (iii) what unforeseen challenges/rewards of pursuing particular methods, collaborations, etc emerged.; (iv) other confusions/trepidations/frustrations the anthropologist encounters in limbo; (v) and how research has broadly transformed the anthropologist and their imagined roles. Herein “field” is understood not only to be a foreign country an anthropologist travels to, but also the different spaces (e.g., laboratory, online) in which many increasingly work. Through exchange with other students and faculty, this symposium aims to weave these narratives into a sustainable discussion of what fieldwork is or can be and what support currently exist or should exist for anthropology students.

Department of Anthropology Colloquium
Mixed Messages: Cultural and Genetic Inheritance in the Constitution of Human Society
Bobby Paul - Department of Anthropology
4:00 pm - ANT 206

"As social and symbolic animals— animals with language and systems of signs— humans are informed by two different kinds of heritage, one biological, the other cultural. Scholars have tended to study our genetic and symbolic lineages separately, but in recent years some have begun to explore them together, offering a ‘dual inheritance theory.’ In this book, Robert A. Paul offers an entirely new and original consideration of our dual inheritance, going deep inside an extensive ethnographic record to outline a fascinating relationship between our genetic codes and symbolic systems.

Examining a wide array of cultures, Paul reveals how the inherent tensions between these two modes of transmission generate many of the features of human society, such as marriage rules, initiation rituals, gender asymmetry, and sexual symbolism. Exploring differences in the requirements, range, and agendas of genetic and symbolic reproduction, he shows that a properly conceived dual inheritance model does a better job of accounting for the distinctive character of actual human societies than either evolutionary or sociocultural construction theory can do alone. Ultimately this book offers a powerful call for a synthesis of the traditions inspired by Darwin, Durkheim, and Freud—one that is critically necessary if we are to advance our understanding of human social life.”

Department of Anthropology Colloquium 
Engaged Anthropology: Potentials/Challenges/Constraints
Panel Discussion: Peter Brown, Bruce Knauft, Liv Stutz, Hilary King, and Tawni Tidwell - Department of Anthropology, Emory University
4:00 pm - ANT 206

In recent decades and increasingly to the present, cultural anthropology (and anthropology more generally) has increasingly addressed and publicized its practical applications and engagements.  This raises a significant question:  What is the best/proper relationship between academic anthropology (e.g., the pursuit of objective or impartial knowledge) and applied or engaged anthropology (e.g., the use of anthropology to address or alleviate significant human problems)?

This colloquium will include short presentations by each panelist that address the above question.  Presentations will be followed by Q&A and general discussion among faculty, graduate students, and interested undergraduates.

Department of Anthropology Colloquium 
What's New in Human Evolution?
Panel discussion: Dr. Jessica Thompson - Department of Anthropology, Dr. Dietrich Stout - Department of Anthropology, Carol Clark - University Communications
4:00 pm - ANT 206

Join two paleoanthropologists from the Emory Department of Anthropology and a senior science communicator from Emory Communications as they lead discussion on the exciting new discoveries in the field of human evolution that have been announced over the last year. These include the world’s earliest stone artifacts, the world’s earliest nuclear DNA recovered from a human ancestor, and the spectacular discovery of a treasure trove of fossil remains from a new species of our genus Homo from South Africa. Learn not just where these discoveries fit into the bigger picture of human evolution, but also how information is disseminated through the media and into the mainstream. The panel participants will outline the major discoveries and their significance, and then field questions about the current state of knowledge and where it is likely to go over the next several years.

Graduate Teaching Roundtables

Friday, February 26

Ethical Issues in Teaching: Cheating and Plagiarism
2:30 — ANT 206

What should you do if you catch a student cheating? Do students tend to be repeat offenders? When do students commonly plagiarize? What should you do if one student plagiarizes another? What are Emory’s honor code policies?  This roundtable is intended to allow students and faculty to share experiences, concerns, and possible approaches to managing classroom and student ethics problems relating to cheating and plagiarism. In addition to hearing from faculty responses and perspectives on past situations, topics to be discussed may include Emory-specific issues, student pressures and resources at Emory to help students manage academic workload and stress, national trends at other US universities, and the question of unconscious bias as it relates to cheating and plagiarism cases. Roundtable discussion with Peggy Barlett and Jim Rilling.

Friday, February 5

Building Successful Mentoring Relationships in Anthropology
2:30 — ANT 206

Advising and mentoring—what’s the difference? How do we facilitate the professional development of our students?  What are different mentoring styles? And how and when do we adjust them for different students? This session centers on the topic of “mentorship” and aims to prepare you to work effectively with both graduate and undergraduate students in Anthropology. Topics may include: personal mentoring styles (and the need to sometimes adjust them); working with graduate and undergraduate students; facilitating professional development; and approaches to writing letters of recommendation. The format for this session will be a roundtable discussion with Dr. David Nugent and Dr. Dietrich Stout. We look forward to your own questions for and contributions to this informal dialogue with our faculty!
