November 30: World on the Move Series - Out of Africa: Early Modern Human Migration

7 p.m. Lindquist Hall 280
Dr. Joanna Gautney (WSU anthropology professor) will present "Out of Africa: Early Modern Human Migration." People have been migrating since the beginning of human history. Though humans live and thrive in nearly every part of the globe today, we can trace our origins to the grasslands of Africa.  How and when did we begin to venture out of Africa?  What happened when humans met other species such as Homo erectus and the Neandertals? How did we adapt to such dramatically different environments?  While migration patterns and processes may change, movement is a fundamental part of what it means to be human.

Human migration on an epic scale could be the result.
