And a sure-fire way to provoke a heated debate among a group of anthropologists is to make the definition of culture the focus of a conference. Melissa Brown, assistant professor of anthropological sciences, did just that a couple of weeks ago. Held Jan. 24 and 25 in Encina Hall, "Toward a Scientific Concept of Culture" brought together 24 scholars from across the globe, including some of the world's most renowned anthropologists and biologists, to try to make sense of this enigma.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
