A presentation from 2023–2024 Sally Starling Seaver Associate Professor Christina Warinner

During her fellowship, Warinner is exploring the phenomenon of lactose intolerance, its history of scientific study, and its unexpected ethnographic and archaeological paradoxes. She will seek to explain humanity’s complicated relationship with milk, from the ancient Near East and the steppes of Mongolia to supermarket shelves.
