The centre serves as the focal point for cultural evolution and gene-culture coevolution research at Durham University. We have a cross-disciplinary membership, including the fields of anthropology, archaeology, biological sciences, business, education, mathematics and psychology. We also welcome researchers from other universities.
Through regular meetings, annual workshops and some seminars, we use CCBC as a forum for discussing the literature, getting feedback on research in progress and fostering collaborations for new research projects. Our research covers both work on humans and non-human animals, and uses a wide variety of methods, including ethnography, behavioural experiments in the lab and the field, phylogenetic analysis, and mathematical and simulation modelling.
