Inferring Processes of Cultural Transmission from Cultural Frequency Data

With Anne Kandler and Max Planck, Institute of Evolutionary Anthropology.

Understanding how social information is used in human populations is one of the challenges in cultural evolution. This talk develops an inference framework that aims at investigating whether underlying processes of cultural transmission can be inferred from such population-level data.
