Institute for Historical Biology, founded by Dr. Michael Blakey, provides space for students to explore new ways human biology and culture can be examined locally, nationally, and globally.

Resources for teaching and researching these topics can be found on the website, as well as, a portal to IHB’s “Remembering Slavery, Resistance, and Freedom” (The Remembering Project).
