Prof. Jamie Tehrani from our Anthropology department features in the Netflix series 'Explained'.

This episode, 'Fairy Tales' discusses how fairy tales have survived thousands of years for a reason. The programme explores their history and how stories like this speak to fundamental human concerns. 


Prof. Tehrani's research focuses on how culture evolves as it gets transmitted from person to person and from generation to generation. He is interested in understanding what makes some things catch on, others die out, and how these processes shape patterns of cultural diversity within and across populations.
