The Paleoanthropology Society was founded in 1992. It recognizes that paleoanthropology is multidisciplinary in nature and the organization's central goal is to bring together physical anthropologists, archaeologists, paleontologists, geologists and a range of other researchers whose work has the potential to shed light on hominid behavioral and biological evolution.
The Society has a new Secretary
Dr. John Polk has volunteered to serve as the Paleoanthropology Society Secretary. Since he is the only candidate, a formal election is not necessary. His 3-year term began in June 2022. John is a biological anthropologist who is Director of the Human Biology Program, University at Albany (State University of New York). He can be reached by email at Secretary@paleoanthro.org
