‘NO!’: How women spoke the first word

Class finishes
20:30
Description

Please note this event will be face-to-face AND on ZOOM 

Chris Knight and Jerome Lewis discuss their co-authored book, ‘When Eve Laughed.’ Although we humans are a species of great ape, our large brains and capacities for language set us apart from our primate cousins. Chris and Jerome untangle the story of how language became established through levelling humour, choral singing and ritual. They argue that although both sexes were involved, female coalitionary strategies played a decisive role at every stage
