Evolutionary Psychology of Beauty, by Indrikis Krams
Dr. Indrikis Krams is a Fullbright Visiting Scholar in the Department of Psychology, University of Tennessee. He will be presenting his research on the evolutionary psychology of beauty.
"It has been commonly thought that standards of beauty are arbitrary cultural conventions that vary across nations and continents. The research carried out in Dr. Krams' lab shows that attractiveness is a multidimensional array which serves as a cue for the phenotypic qualities that provide selective benefits for those who choose their mates based on these criteria."
