UNLV’S Department of Anthropology presents a Colloquium by Dr. Clark Barrett, titled, "Using Cross-Cultural Comparisons to Study the Building Blocks of Human Cognition." Dr. Barrett is affiliated with the FPR-UCLA Center for Culture, Brain, and Development and Center for Behavior, Evolution, and Culture, and is associate professor of Anthropology.

Drawing inferences about human nature is impossible without cross-cultural research. Recent years have shown a resurgence of interest in cross-cultural comparisons as a means of triangulating universals and variation in human cognition. In this talk, Dr. Barrett will describe the research h conducted over more than a decade with the Shuar of Ecuador, showing how cross-cultural comparisons can help to illuminate design features of the human mind in domains including foraging, social cognition, and cultural learning.
