Exploring Representations of Neanderthals in Popular Culture

Sunday 12 June

2-4pm

Book online at mcrmuseum.eventbrite.com or phone 0161 275 2648, free, adults

Early popular culture representations played a significant role in shaping the stereotypical perception of Neanderthals as dim witted and brutish cavemen. This talk by Dr David Kirby, the University of Manchester and author of Lab Coats in Hollywood, will explore how this stereotype remains a prevalent feature in movie, literature, television and comic books but it will also examine how these representations have dramatically changed over the last 150 years alongside our scientific understanding of this species.
