Agustín Fuentes Professor of Anthropology

Agustín Fuentes, trained in zoology and anthropology, is a professor of anthropology at the University of Notre Dame. His research delves into the how and why of being human. From chasing monkeys in the jungles and cities of Asia, to exploring the lives of our evolutionary ancestors, to examining what people actually do across the globe, Professor Fuentes is interested in both the big questions and the small details of what makes humans and our closest relatives tick.

His new book is Race, Monogamy and Other Lies They Told You: Busting Myths About Human Nature (University of California Press).
