How Our Babies Made Us Human

Tuesday, August 30, 2022
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST

Join Dr. Amanda Veile, biological anthropologist from Purdue University, to learn how babies helped shape the evolution of human life! Human babies possess characteristics that are unique among mammals and even among other apes. Dr. Veile will discuss the evolution of the human birthing mechanism, human-specific infant feeding behaviors, and how babies helped shape early human social organization.

Dr. Veile is a biological anthropologist and studies behavior and health patterns in Latin American indigenous populations. Her research examines birthing practices, breastfeeding ecology, and the epidemiologic factors that shape cross-cultural variation in child development. She maintains active field research projects in Mexico (Yucatec Maya subsistence farmers) and Peru (peri-urban migrants and Andean farmers).

Dr. Veile is an Assistant Professor of Biological Anthropology, a Center on Aging and the Life Course (CALC) faculty associate, an Ingestive Behavior Research Center (IBRC) executive board member and Director of LABOR (Laboratory for Behavior, Ontogeny and Reproduction) at Purdue University. She also holds a courtesy appointment in the newly launched Department of Public Health.
