The excd.lab investigates how the startling (yet not infinite!) variety in human culture has evolved. Led by Dr Fiona Jordan, we are interdisciplinary researchers and bring together methods and ideas from across anthropology, biology, and the cognitive and language sciences. Much of the work in the group uses computational evolutionary methods, particularly phylogenetics, but we also use experimental, field, linguistic, and elicitation approaches.
We EXplore Cultural Diversity and we use Evolutionary and X–Cultural methoDs.
