NEEPS is the first regional sister organization of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society.
We welcome all researchers and students of human behavior with an interest in applying evolutionary principles to the mind and behavior.
This society is designed to facilitate interactions among scholars who study psychological questions from an evolutionary perspective. Given this relatively broad charge, we welcome scholars from multiple disciplines (e.g., anthropology, biology, literary studies, psychology, sociology) with a diversity of research and theoretical interests.
Our members are predominantly from the Northeastern part of the U.S. (PA, NJ, NY, CT, RI, MA, VT, NH, and ME) and from nearby states and provinces (e.g., Ontario, Nova Scotia, OH). If you’re interested in joining and coming to the NorthEast for our annual meeting, don’t let geography stand in the way! England, Georgia, and Michigan are, in fact, already represented!
