CRIA researcher Francisca Alves Cardoso will speak about these and other related issues on December 14th, at 5 pm, in Évora, at the second meeting of the ‘IN2PAST PhD Talks’. HERCULES researcher Ana Curto will be in charge of discussing the presentation ‘Human ancestral remains: scientific, technological and ethical perspectives. Case studies from the Neolithic to World War I’.

The event takes place in the Faculty Room (Sala de Docentes) at Colégio do Espírito Santo, University of Évora. Admittance is free and, if you cannot attend, you can always access this talk via Zoom.

The ‘IN2PAST PhD Talks’ series takes place between November 2023 and June 2024, in Évora, Lisbon and Minho. It aims to promote the intersection between diverse scientific areas, which defines the transdisciplinary vocation of our associated laboratory, from chemistry and music to art history and architecture, from anthropology to contemporary history or archaeology.
