This talk will explore incest in a biocultural perspective. Because incest is a kind of inbreeding, we will discuss inbreeding in human societies and compare the behavior with that of other animals. The conversation will highlight the cultural universals of incest taboos and inbreeding avoidance behaviors in various societies.

Nasser Malit is an Associate Professor of Biological Anthropology at SUNY Potsdam. He teaches biological anthropology courses in the Dept. of Anthropology. His research focuses on fossil humans, but he also enjoys topics in evolutionary health.
