Ashland: Doc Film & Discussion Series explores ‘The Evolution of Human Nutrition’

Ashland – The Ashland Documentary Film & Discussion Series will present a symposium on film, “The Evolution of Human Nutrition, Part 3,” Tuesday, Oct. 28, from 7-9 p.m., in the Community Room of the Ashland Library, 66 Front St. Admission is free, and viewers are invited to stay for discussion.

 

The University of California San Diego symposium presents what is known about the evolution of human nutrition. In this third and final part of the UCSD series, three speakers present brief but provocative talks:

 

*   Peter Ungar talks about the early part of the human fossil record – Australopith. He asks, “What is the actual hard evidence for the diets of human ancestors from millions of years ago?”

*   Professors Alison Brooks and Margaret Schoninger tell us what is known about Neanderthal diets. Neanderthals are extinct while Homo sapiens rule the earth. Did diet have anything to do with it?

*   Mary C. Stiner will address archaic human diets with emphasis on what early diets tell us about social life and organization

 

The film is presented by the Friends of the Ashland Library and co-sponsored by the Ashland Farmers’ Market. The Documentary Film & Discussion Series meets every 2nd Thursday and 4th Tuesday of the month for an in-depth look at important topics of our day. The moderated discussions are often lively and thought provoking. All points of view are welcomed.
