Since graduating from the University of Alabama in 2002, I have been at the University of West Florida in Pensacola studying anthropology. I am currently a graduate student here working on an M.A. in biosocial anthropology. How are current human social behaviors (including “religion”) affected by our evolutionary past? Are the behaviors of humans really all that different in kind from other primates? What role does group identity play in human “culture” and how is it related to our biological origins? And just what is “culture” anyway?
These are some of the questions I ask in my current studies. I’ve also taken up art photography as a hobby since leaving UA. I’ve included a black & white self-portrait for your viewing pleasure (hopefully). Tell me what you think!
