Wednesday, April 10, 6:00 pm – Paleofantasy: What Evolution Really Tells Us about Sex, Diet, and How We Live


From the Stone Age diet plan to Paleo workouts, our culture is rife with pseudo-scientific fads based on a time when we supposedly were more “in sync” with nature. Marlene Zuk, professor of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior at the University of Minnesota, dismantles this nostalgia and argues that evolution yields neither perfection nor a final product. The Wednesday, April 10 lecture is part of the Evolution Matters Lecture Series, supported by a generous gift from Drs. Herman and Joan Suit. Free and open to the public. Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street. Free event parking for evening lectures in the 52 Oxford Street garage.
