This is the website for the Cultural Evolution Society (CES) Conference 2024 (‘CES 24‘), which will be a hybrid conference held at Durham University (UK) on 9th-11th September 2024, and hosted by Durham Cultural Evolution Research Centre (DCERC). This conference is immediately followed by the hybrid CES Transformation Fund capstone conference (‘Capstone conference‘) on 12th-13th September 2024.

See the Programme page for more details of both CES 24 and the Capstone conference, the Registration page to register for one or both of them, and our page on visiting Durham.

We look forward to seeing you in Durham later this year!
