Last week’s Stirling Lecture (26 Feb) on ‘Ageing, menopause and parenting – perspectives on human evolution’ is now available online. This year’s lecture was given by Professor Phyllis C. Lee from the University of Stirling was well received. Professor Lee has longstanding research interests in life history, including aspects of growth, development, longevity and ageing, particularly as this relates to long-lived mammals such as elephants and primates (including humans).
The Stirling Lecture is held annually in honour of Professor Paul Stirling, founding Professor of the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at the University of Kent. He is best known as the author of the classic ethnography, ‘Turkish Village’.
