IEET > Affiliate Scholar > Dustin Eirdosh

Dustin Eirdosh

Dustin Eirdosh is serving as the Visiting Asst. Professor in Social & Evolutionary Neuropsychology at the University of Toliara, a unique biological and human sciences institution in the Atsimo Andrefana (southwestern) region of Madagascar. Originally trained as a Human Ecologist; Eirdosh has spent most of the last decade developing education innovation projects in Maine, as well as as a producer of Grass-fed beef & dairy products in Maine, Washington State, and Pennsylvania. While studying the moral psychology of food business at the University of Kassel in Witzenhausen, Germany; he moved to Madagascar to work on projects that integrate evolutionary sciences across disciplines; including in the reflective development of emerging technologies.

As coordinator for the Madagascar branch of the Africa Futures Project (AFP) at IEET; Eirdosh is working with the newly created IT Leadership Team to create the first University website in the country that is specifically aimed towards engagement with the global community. His work in the AFP dovetails with his development of University of Toliara as the first African Nation member of the EvoS Consortium for Evolutionary Studies (www.EvoStudies.org); a network of higher educational institutions working to integrate evolutionary studies (including genetic through technological adaptive systems) across the biological and social sciences. Eirdosh’s core academic interests lie in the application of moral psychology towards evolutionary education and emerging technologies; especially in the domains of agricultural and human enhancement.

He maintains two blogs:

  • MythicMinds.us: Exploring the evolution of human sciences in southwestern Madagascar
  • MythicMeats.com: Offering evolutionary insights on cattle and cultural fermentation
