CARTA: Imagining the Future of Anthropogeny

This series focuses on how scientists are working to understand some of the most striking human-specific characteristics: the reasons for our bipedality, the factors selecting for our dexterity at creating and using tools, the true age of fire use in our distant ancestors, the mechanisms, both social and biological, leading to our symbolic capacities, personal names, language, and shared imaginations. This symposium features CARTA advisory committee members who share their visions for the future of anthropogeny. They highlight where they hope future efforts should be focused and what type of novel collaborations are most promising for improving our understanding of the human phenomenon.
