Cubass Christmas Party!

CUBASS Christmas Party!

 

Shot in just 17 days, The Mole People is the 1956 directorial debut of Virgil W. Vogel, who later went on to direct episodes of TV favourites including Airwolf, Magnum PI, Knightrider, and Walker Texas Ranger.

 

Rated at 4.4 stars out of 10 on IMDB, this looks set to be a treat not only for baaaad film enthusiasts, but for fans of films involving actors wearing humps on their backs made from rolled up newspapers.

CUBASS Drop-in sessions

CUBASS is in the process of recruiting new members, and will be holding two
informal drop-in sessions this week.

 

++++ CUBASS GUEST SPEAKER SERIES ++++

CUBASS will be hosting a talk by:
Dr David Beresford-Jones, Fellow of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research
On
“The Synthesis between Archaeology and Linguistics in the Andes”
At
LCHES Seminar Room, Friday 2nd March, 4-5pm

Dr David Beresford-Jones is an archaeologist based at the McDonald specialising in the development of complex society and human impact on past landscapes. His presentation will provide an introduction to the complementary disciplines of archaeology and linguistics, using the Andes as a case study. This is a rare opportunity to hear a topic of relevance to biological anthropology from a different disciplinary and methodological perspective.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the talk, and we will be heading to the Anchor (Silver St) afterwards for drinks, and would love for all to join us.

CUBASS & Resident Z-list film expert and enthusiast Dr Jay Stock proudly present the next baaaaad film offering – QUEEN KONG

____________________________________________________________________

Released in 1976 as the British attempt to cash in on the success of King Kong, this may just be the greatest film you’ll ever see*

QUEEN KONG: “She’s in one of her moods again”

You MUST arrive between 6:45 and 7pm to get into the building. This is because the event is out of hours and the doors will be locked. A committee member will be on the door to let everyone in!

 

 

*May not be the correct use of the word “greatest”. Bring a drink and a sense of humour, but expect to NEED a pub visit post-movie.

LONG LIVE THE QUEEN

++++ CUBASS GUEST SPEAKER SERIES ++++

CUBASS will be hosting a talk by:
Dr David Chivers, University Reader Emeritus in Primate Biology and Conservation
On
“Socio-ecology and Conservation of the Asian Apes”
At
LCHES Seminar Room, Friday 17th February, 4-5pm

Dr Chivers is an expert on primate diet, primate socio-ecology and rainforest conservation. He is a principal figure in primatology, and Evolutionary Anthropology describes his contribution to primatology and conservation as “extraordinary”. He has also been involved in the hunt for the Orang Pendek (also known as the Indonesian Yeti), the Sumatran crypto-zoological bipedal primate.

A recent article on his impact on primatology published in Evolutionary Anthropology is available at this link: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/evan.20327/full

There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the talk, and we will be heading to the Anchor (Silver St) afterwards for drinks, and would love for all to join us.

This week marks the start of our Guest Speaker Series, and we are kicking it off with some Archaeology action…

CUBASS Guest Speaker Series: Dr Philip R. Nigst  

“The Early Upper Palaeolithic of Willendorf II”

Dr Nigst joined the Department of Archaeology (University of Cambridge) last year, having previously worked in the Department of Human Evolution, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology.

He is one of the principal investigators of the Willendorf site, where he has been leading excavations since 2006.

Dr Nigst’s work at Willendorf aims to generate a better understanding of the behaviours of modern humans first entering Europe, as well as the climatic conditions under which Neanderthals were replaced by modern humans.

Friday 3rd February 4-5pm,  LCHES Seminar Room (Fitzwilliam Street)

These are informal talks, do feel free to ask questions, and we may well continue discussions in the pub afterwards.

The talks are open to members and non-members alike, so we hope to see you all there.

 

Further information about the site can be found at www.eva.mpg.de/evolution/files/willendorf.htm
