ICArEHB researchers focus on uncovering human stories from the beginnings of our species to the emergence of complex societies. The ICArEHB Dialogues series was designed to represent the breadth of research that the centre covers and to engage researchers and the public from across the world with the research of leading experts, whose work falls within ICArEHB’s research agenda and themes. We hope that this seminar series inspires dialogues about the nature of human cultural and biological evolution. The subject of our second series is ‘Migrations and Dispersals… ‘ .
We have invited eight researchers whose interests range from early human evolution to the more recent development of complex societies. Each session will aim to stimulate a dialogue between the researchers and provide a chance for the research community and public to join the conversation on important topics in human origins.
