Title: Human evolution and diversity
Description: This course explores the evolution of our species, what makes humans distinct, and how we have developed the biological, cultural and technological diversity we now see around us. The course examines new research, highlighting the most recent discoveries and theoretical breakthroughs, encouraging students to learn more about the major debates and important theories in the study of human evolution. Specifically, the course provides students with a background in evolutionary theory, genetics, anthropology, paleoarchaeology, and comparative primatology in order to address a number of topics: the development of the human brain; bipedalism; language; families; social life; sexuality; reproduction; hunting; diet; clothing; art; stone tools and technology; domesticated plants and animals; cities; and the first civilisations. The class also demonstrates how an evolutionary perspective offers new insights into modern human diversity, including both cultural and biological differences among us.
