DHFP: Zoom With a Language-Trained Bonobo

  • Tuesday, March 22, 2022
  • 5:00 PM- 7:00 PM
  • Atherton Hall Room C9
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet (virtually) a language-trained bonobo. Kanzi and his friends (colleagues?) are located at the Ape Cognition and Conservation Initiative in Iowa where they have several acres to roam and are well kept. Learn about the ape language projects of yore as well as topics in contemporary comparative research whose goal is to determine the evolutionary roots of humankind’s impressive cognitive abilities. Dinner will be provided.

Schreyer Scholar Matt Tracey

My family has always loved Penn State and to be able to take this love along with the fact that Penn State is a top research university is amazing. This combined with fact that Schreyer has a culture of independent thinking and an emphasis on a global perspective allows me to see my education as being much bigger than me.
