Mark W. Moffett, Author and Photographer
Based on his new book, The Human Swarm: How Societies Arise, Thrive, and Fall (Basic Books, April 2019), Moffett will discuss the social adaptations that bind societies and distinguish humans from other animal species. Drawing on findings in psychology, sociology, and anthropology, he explores how human society evolved from intimate chimp communities into sprawling civilizations of unrivaled complexity–and will address what is required to sustain them.

Lecture and Book Signing. Free and open to the public.
Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage
Presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology.
