                        Assistant Professor of Biology

WHAT:          Penn Science Café: Evolution of Social Networks and Social Behaviors


WHEN:          Tuesday, October 15, 6-7 p.m. 


WHERE:       Suzanne Roberts Theatre, 480 S. Broad St., Philadelphia


The structure of a society determines who gets to interact with whom, and in what relation, resulting in networks of social connections. These social networks play a very important role in the ecology and evolution of all animals, very much including humans. Erol Akçay will talk about how evolution shapes these social networks in animals and how social networks co-evolve with behaviors.


The talk is part of the Penn Science Cafe, a free public lecture series presented by Penn Arts & Sciences that sheds light on faculty research in the arts and sciences. The presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A. Café events are free and open to the public. Food and beverages will be available for purchase before, during, and after the talk. RSVPs are encouraged due to limited seating. For more information or directions, call or email Amber Grier at 215-573-3008 or
