Durham Cultural Evolution Research Centre
About Durham Cultural Evolution Research Centre
We are a highly interdisciplinary group of researchers using evolutionary models to study cultural change and diversity.
About Our Research
Our research involves observational studies, experiments, analyses of large secondary datasets, phylogenetic methods and mathematical modelling.
We are a welcoming and outward-facing group, meeting regularly to discuss current topics and articles in cultural evolution in an informal, friendly environment. We welcome new members from a wide range of disciplines with interests that may intersect with the field of cultural evolution – please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Director (Dr Sally Street) if you would like to join the group or just find out more about us.
The Centre has strong links with the Cultural Evolution Society, of which Professor Rachel Kendal was president from 2018 to 2020.
