Several hundred people attend this public event. It is sponsored by AMNH, not Brainiacs. Seating is very limited (maybe 100 seats?) and WE WILL NOT BE SITTING TOGETHER. Most people end up standing during the lecture - to get a seat, you'll need to arrive at AMNH no later than 6:30.
I will not be able to find you in the crowd. It is YOUR responsibility to find me, if you'd like, and introduce yourself. I will be standing toward the front of the auditorium on the right-hand side.
The actual lecture usually starts at around 7:00pm and goes until 8:00pm, then there is Q&A. There is a cash bar at the event.
SciCafe: The Story of the Human Body
How and why is the human body the way it is? What did evolution adapt our bodies for? And how is the human body changing today? To address these questions, evolutionary biologist Daniel Lieberman will examine the major evolutionary transformations that have shaped the human body since we diverged from the apes, and how our bodies have further evolved and changed—for the better and the worse—since the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions.
