PALEOFANTASY
What Evolution Really Tells Us about Sex, Diet, and How We Live

Lecture by Marlene Zuk, Professor of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, University of Minnesota

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 6:00 PM

From the Stone Age diet plan to Paleo workouts, our culture is rife with pseudo-scientific fads based on a time when we supposedly were more “in sync” with nature. Marlene Zuk dismantles this nostalgia and argues that evolution yields neither perfection nor a final product. Part of the Evolution Matters Lecture Series, supported by a generous gift from Drs. Herman and Joan Suit. Free and open to the public. Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street. Free event parking for evening lectures in the 52 Oxford Street garage.
