Charles Darwin’s concept of sexual selection is as relevant as ever for understanding ourself and the world around us.

We invite you to two thought provoking talks on the subject:

"Sex, mutations, and marketing"
Geoffrey Miller, Associate Professor, University of New Mexico

"Sex differences in physical violence – a product of sexual selection"
Vibeke Kennair Ottesen, Criminologist, Centre for Forensic Psychiatry, Oslo

The talks will be followed by an open discussion!

All are welcome.
