The proceedings of the three-day international symposium Aurignacian Genius, organized in 2013 by CIRHUS member Randall White and Toulouse researchers Raphaëlle Bourrillon and François Bon, have just been published as a special issue of the journal Palethnology. The symposium and the 350 page publication of the proceedings in both English and French, were funded by the Partner University Fund and the Andrew Mellon Foundation.
