Welcome to the South Eastern Evolution and Human Behavior group! This group was founded in 2017 by Sarah Brosnan and Adrian Jaeggi to bring together people working on evolution and human behavior broadly defined - primatologists, paleoanthropologists, archeologists, human behavioral ecologists, cultural evolutionists, evolutionary modelers, evolutionary psychologists, etc. are all welcome. This is a small regional meeting: our goal is to bring together people from the South East (roughly, Georgia, Alabama, the Carolinas, Florida, Tennessee) in a small, friendly setting to facilitate connections and informal exchange among like-minded researchers and students. The previous meetings were attended by 50-75 people from Tennessee, Georgia State, UGA, Emory, KSU, Clemson, FIT, and more, and featured talks by faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students. See here for the SEEHB (2017) and SEEHB2 (2018) and SEEHB3 (spring 2019) programs (and see below for photos!).

Big news this year- We’re moving SEEHB to the fall! There were so many conflicts in the spring that this year we are trying in October. SEEHB4 will again be hosted at the Indian Creek Lodge of Georgia State, on Friday, October 18th, 2019. The meeting will start with dinner and drinks on Thursday night, October 17th, at Sarah’s house, and there will be presentations all day Friday (see conference schedule here). As before, everyone will get a chance to briefly introduce themselves with a 1-2 minute lightning slide and everyone is encouraged to present a poster, especially students who may not be ready for a talk, but still want to get feedback on their work!

We aim to keep registration costs to a bare minimum to encourage wide participation; the venue is being sponsored by the Language Research Center of GSU, so we will just need enough to cover food and drinks ($15 for students, $25 for postdocs, and $30 for faculty). In addition, we kindly ask all locals to consider hosting out-of-towners to make it more affordable.
