Welcome to ICEA
Since the inception of modern anthropology, considerations of how human biology and natural ecology impact on human thought, behaviour, social structures and cultural expression have always occupied a central position in the discipline. However, the past decade has witnessed advances in the evolutionary and cognitive sciences that offer new opportunities to bridge the gap between social, cognitive and biological anthropology, placing them closer together than at any time in their respective histories. ICEA is also home to a well-established research cluster in cognitive anthropology known as the Centre for Anthropology and Mind (CAM). Current research projects include 'Ritual, Community, and Conflict', supported by a Large Grant from the ESRC, and 'Religion's Impact on Human Life: Integrating Proximate and Ultimate Perspectives', funded by the John Templeton Foundation.
