CARTA 10th Anniversary: Revisiting the Agenda


More than 20 years ago, a small group of La Jolla academics began periodic meetings for transdisciplinary discussions on anthropogeny (explaining the origin of humans). This effort blossomed into an international intellectual collaborative organized by UC San Diego and the Salk Institute as the Center for Academic Research and Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA).

At the formal opening of CARTA in 2008, we set out to “define the agenda.” With Ten years of new and relevant information, we’ll revisit the agenda with an expanded group of experts to address the following questions on a broad array of selected topics: What do we know for certain? What do we think we know? What do we need to know? How do we proceed?

Effectively, this symposium will be a whirlwind tour of many approaches to anthropogeny.

Free admission but registration is required. See website for details.

A live webcast of this symposium will also available.

Presented by UC San Diego/Salk Institute Center for Academic Research and Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA)

Sponsored by the G. Harold and Leila Y. Mathers Charitable Foundation and the Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group
