HBES’s Roundtable Seminar Series

This series is an opportunity for HBES members to engage with experts on topics in the evolutionary behavioral sciences. Each virtual session will feature a panel of speakers answering questions from a moderator and live audience. Join us each month to discuss the big questions facing our field. Live sessions on Crowdcast are open to registered HBES members only, but a recording will be made publicly available on Youtube after the event. HBES members will be emailed with login information before each session. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the event coordinators at hbesroundtableseries@gmail.com.

To attend the livestream, HBES members will need a password, which will be emailed to HBES members’ email accounts the week of each event. You can follow the Crowdcast account for additional updates and reminders.

Please be advised that this is an official HBES event and the society’s Code of Conduct applies.
