The BirthRites independent research group (started: December 2019) focuses on the anthropology of reproduction and its implications for cultural evolution and demography.
The overarching aims of the group are:
- to better understand the relationship between culture and reproduction in the past, present and future;
- to develop and test theoretical models of reproductive dynamics grounded in the field of cultural evolution, and
- to draw together research practices from the humanities and sciences.
This involves a combination of high-resolution field research, ethnography, comparative analysis, statistical and theoretical modeling, and conceptual approaches to reproduction.
