In this talk I will describe the VariKin project, a multidisciplinary approach to understand the patterned variation in human kinship terms. The team brings together theory and method across anthropology, linguistics, evolutionary biology, and computational methods. We have early results from large cross-cultural analyses using comparative phylogenetic methods, studies of the patterns of frequency of use in different language varieties, and insights into child acquisition and use from fieldwork in a Datooga community in Tanzania.

This talk is part of the Biological Anthropology Seminar Series series.
