When and How does Cumulative Culture Emerge?

Three researchers from the School of Psychology – PhD students Elisa Bandini and Eva Reindl, and Birmingham Fellow Dr Claudio Tennie – will be hosting a two-day interdisciplinary conference at the University of Birmingham on 9 and 10 June 2016 on the topic 'When and How does Cumulative Culture Emerge?'

Keynote speakers

The conference will cover outstanding questions on cumulative culture such as:

  • Is cumulative culture unique to humans?
  • Which other species might potentially possess it?
  • What are the cognitive, motivational, environmental requirements for cumulative culture to emerge?

This promises to be a very exciting conference allowing researchers of all levels from different disciplines to meet in an innovative format to discuss Cumulative Culture.
