The Difference between the Sexes - From Biology to BehaviourEMBL Heidelberg, Germany Friday 5 November - Saturday 6 November 2010 Registration closed
Jonathan Marks is Professor of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where he has taught since 2000. His primary training is in biological anthropology and genetics, but his interests are broad, and he was a Visiting Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin earlier this year. He received the 1999 Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching from the American Anthropological Association, and served as President of the General Anthropology Division from 2000-2002. In 2006 he was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is the author of What It Means to Be 98% Chimpanzee (2002), which was awarded the W. W. Howells Prize in Biological Anthropology from the American Anthropological Association and the J. I. Staley Prize from the School of Advanced Research; and Why I Am Not a Scientist (2009), both published by the University of California Press. Paradoxically, however, he is about 98% scientist, and not a chimpanzee.
