    Evolutionary biologist Daniel Lieberman discusses the evolutionary history of the human body by examining major transformations the body has made over the millennia. From the advent of bipedalism, to the rise of hunter-gatherers and the development of a very large brain, the human body has adapted in ways that allow for exceptional athletic endurance and intelligence. Central to Lieberman's lecture are the effects of cultural evolutionary forces on our health and longevity. Lecture followed by a reception in the HMNH galleries. Free and open to the public. Free event parking is available at the 52 Oxford Street Garage after 5:00 pm.
