Third annual Symposium: Modern human origins and dispersal
The third annual symposium of the DFG Center for Advanced Studies will highlight the theme of modern human origins and dispersal, with a focus on novel, multi-disciplinary research from East Africa. Drawing from the on-going investigations by the Junior Research Group led by Dr. Yonatan Sahle, as well as the collaborative research of the Center’s team and visiting fellows, the symposium will provide a venue for discussing the biological and cultural origins and evolution of modern humans, their dispersal within and outside of Africa, and insights from archaeogenetics and historical linguistics. Speakers ofthe symposium will present new and continuing research from field and laboratory work. Symposium proceedings will be scheduled for publication in 2018.
