New York University’s Center for the Study of Human Origins will host “Neanderthals Revisited: New Approaches and Perspectives,” January 27-28, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The sessions will be held at Hemmerdinger Hall at NYU’s Silver Center (100 Washington Square East).

Although significant scientific breakthroughs in the study of Neanderthals and their place in human evolution have been made in recent years, there have been no recent forums on the subject. Such events allow leading scholars to come together to exchange ideas and to compare the results of different methods and approaches.
