Who we are

This is the homepage of NEEPS–the NorthEastern Evolutionary Psychology Society. Now into our second decade, NEEPS has been cultivating scholarship and inquiry into the evolutionary roots of behavior since 2007. NEEPS is a truly international society, regularly drawing scholars and students from nations around the world to our annual conference. Built on a foundation of collegiality and support, NEEPS strives to help cultivate the next generation of scholars in the evolutionary behavioral sciences. Our flagship journal, Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences, is the only evolution-based journal published by the American Psychological Association.
