Request a Book Purchase

All suggestions are considered carefully by the Librarian in the context of the Lee Library Collection Development Policy and current purchasing priorities and in consultation with the relevant Director of Studies for the subject area where necessary. The Lee Library does not usually buy specialist research material, and consideration may be given to the likely number of users and the longevity of a title when deciding whether to make a purchase.

We source most of our books from a specialist library supplier and orders usually take around one to two weeks to arrive. Urgent orders can sometimes by satisfied more quickly (i.e. you should not be discouraged from making a suggestion because you think the books will take too long to come), but this cannot always by guaranteed. Please try to think ahead and suggest any titles you know you will need for a certain date in good time.

Lunchtime Seminar - Towards a socially conscious evolutionary science of culture

27/02/2019 at 13.00

Attempts to apply evolutionary models and thinking to human societies have a dark past, ranging from Darwin's own characterisation of 'civilised' versus 'savage' races, to social Darwinism and eugenics, and the more recent efforts of some evolutionary psychologists to naturalise oppressive social stereotypes.
