The ECC faculty shares an interest in human culture and cognition
and a belief that evolutionary theory is a powerful tool to help
both pose and answer very interesting questions about what it
is to be human. We are curious about all the dimensions of our
common humanity: our passions, our values, our awe of the sacred,
our willingness to suffer to be accepted into a group, our human
tendencies to both cooperate and engage in violent conflict with
members of our own group and with members of other groups, and
our abilities to craft sustainable adaptations to the environment.
We welcome students who share these interests with us.
