CARTA Public Symposium – Awareness of Death and Personal Mortality: Implications for Anthropogeny

Join the live webcast!  “Awareness of Death and Personal Mortality: Implications for Anthropogeny” is the topic of a free public symposium hosted by the UCSD/Salk Center for Academic Research & Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA) on Friday, March 3rd (1:00 – 5:30 pm PT), co-chaired by Nicholas Humphrey (University of Cambridge) and Ajit Varki (UC San Diego).
Humans seem to be unusual in the quality and extent of our responses to death, as well as the ability to translate these experiences into an understanding of our personal mortality. How did this uniquely human quality shape our origins, and what are the present-day consequences? This symposium will bring together experts from a wide range of disciplines to offer answers to these questions and more.
