ICArEHB Dialogues ‘ Migrations and Dispersals in the Late Pleistocene‘, will take place Friday 22nd of April at 4pm (Faro time) in videoconference, with Alice Leplongeon and Kurt Rademaker, and will be convened by Sara E. Rhodes.
Participation is free but registration (at the bottom of this page) is required.


Alice Leplongeon is a Palaeolithic archaeologist interested in studying changes or persistence in human technical behaviours as shown by the characteristics of stone artefacts in Africa during the last 50,000 years. She particularly interested in how data from stone artefacts, associated with data from all fields of prehistory (e.g., palaeoenvironmental, genetic and human fossil studies) can help us to reconstruct human-environment interactions, patterns of behavioural changes or population dynamics.  She is currently a senior postdoctoral fellow from the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO) at the Department of Archaeology of KU Leuven in Belgium.

Kurt Rademaker is an archaeologist who investigates hunter-gatherer adaptations and human-environment interactions in Andean South America. He completed his PhD at the University of Maine in 2012, conducted postdoctoral work at the University of Tübingen, and is currently Assistant Professor at Michigan State University. He has led archaeological survey and excavation projects throughout the US and Peru and participated in field research on volcanic and glacial geomorphology. His current research is focused on Late Pleistocene to Middle Holocene settlement dynamics and biocultural adaptations in the high Andes
