Humans on the move: evolutionary perspectives on prehistoric human migration


With over seven billion people, humans currently dominate almost all corners of the globe. Indeed human relatives have been making large-scale migrations for almost two million years with important cultural and biological consequences for our species. Each week will cover a theme related to the causes and consequence of human migrations. The focus will be on biological, environmental, and cultural drivers of human migration, as well as the impact of migration events on human populations. This is a capstone course in EvAnth, suggested for seniors with multiple previous EvAnth courses or graduate students.
