Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Sept. 26: “A Revolution in Evolution: Rewriting Evolutionary History”

A lecture by Peter Brown, leader of the team of paleo-anthropologists that recently discovered “Hobbits”

When: Monday 26 September, 7:30-9:00 PM

Where: Butler University, Atherton Union Building 4600 Sunset Ave. Indianapolis

Peter Brown is associate professor of archeology and paleoanthropology, University of New England, Australia. He led a team that discovered Homo floresiensis, a small, human-like species that lived 18,000 years ago on a remote Indonesian island — possibly the most important discoveries in recent evolutionary science. His talk will focus on how our understanding of human evolution changes as new discoveries are made. Dr. Brown has carried out research into the evolution and geographic variation of people in the Australian and Asian regions. His research has centered, most recently, on human remains from China, Japan, India and Indonesia.
