Humans are very weird primates. We walk on two legs, are the most ferocious predators alive, live in all corners of the globe, cook our food and are incredibly reliant on technology. This course will introduce students to human origins and ongoing debates about how natural selection acted to shape our past. We will focus our discussions on major transitions in our ancestors? sexual, dietary, technological and migratory behaviors.

This course will meet from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm in room MCZ 541.
