Wallace is a platform for conducting research on experimental cultural evolution. Its namesake is Alfred Russel Wallace, a British naturalist and the oft-ignored codiscoverer of evolution by natural selection. You can use Wallace to create new experiments or to reproduce existing experiments. For example, the following code runs a replication of Bartlett’s 1932 study, in which participants pass a story down a chain, from one person to the next.

- Runs experiments on experimental cultural evolution
- Coordinates participant recruitment using Mechanical Turk
- Demos of common experimental paradigms
