Sheina Lew-Levy

Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Simon Fraser University, Canada

About the author:

Using methods from anthropology and developmental psychology, I study hunter-gatherer children’s learning. I use these data to understand the evolution of cumulative culture and human childhood.

What I want to achieve:

I highlight human diversity in learning ecologies, in order to problematize what we consider to be normal human development in the west.

Other information:

I am a co-founder and co-director of Forager Child Studies, an interdisciplinary research collective which investigates the pasts, presents, and futures of forager and mixed-subsistence children’s lives.
