Here Tom Currie, Senior Lecturer in Cultural Evolution at the University of Exeter, will argue that the same kind of comparative techniques routinely used in the natural sciences can be employed to tackle questions relating to human history. In this talk Tom will explain new research that shows how evolutionary theory & big data can help build bridges between different disciplines and uncover the patterns of human history and the processes that have shaped the world we live in today.
