Prof Angela Morgan (Pediatric Lead at Redenlab) presenting at Molecular Anthropology of Language Symposium in Zurich

Over the past two decades, genomic studies have played an increasingly important role in exploring the history of our own species. These studies have helped to gain detailed insights into the first appearance of anatomically modern humans in Africa and their subsequent migration to other parts of the world. Genomic approaches also allowed researchers to unravel intricate details of population admixture as well as gene functions and adaptations previously deemed impossible. These developments have opened new avenues for exploring the evolutionary origins and the historical dynamics of human language, one of the most distinctive features of our species.

A two-day special symposium on The Molecular Anthropology of Language: Results and Prospects will be held at the University of Zurich from 29-30 September 2021. It will bring together both established and emerging leaders in this burgeoning field.

Prof Angela Morgan will be speaking on “Monogenic related speech and language conditions”. The program can be found here.
