Friendship and Female Power in the Lemurs of Madagascar

By Dr. Rebecca Lewis
Anthropology Professor
The University of Texas at Austin

Madagascar, off the coast of Africa, is the land of lemurs. It is home to over 100 lemur species, including the “sifaka”. Sifaka are unusual primates with crazy-eyed stares, amazing leaping abilities, and societies where females are at the top of the hierarchy (primate Wonder Women!). Join Rebecca Lewis as she talks about the unique challenges of fieldwork in Madagascar and shares her research on the behavior, social relationships, and power in sifaka societies. Registration opens three weeks prior to event.
