We are proud to announce that the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences has featured Erin Burke and the Gay Fathers Project in their September newsletter and on their website!

 

“Erin Burke (Anthropology) wants to find out how and why human males nurture their young. In order to fully understand why studying paternal care would warrant such attention, it is important to first realize how unusual it is, she says.”
