Modern origins in the Mediterranean : interdisciplinary approach

[Congrès, colloques, réunions]

14 & 15 janvier 2016
Marseille : IMéRA

International Workshop organisé en partenariat par l’IMéRA, le LAMPEA et l’Université d’Oxford

One of the most keenly debated issues in human evolutionary research concerns the modern origins and dispersal of Homo sapiens. The Mediterranean is of key interest in the understanding of human evolution and behavioural development. Themes for discussion in the workshop include the nature, environment, chronology and human associations with the cultural sub-divisions in the Late Pleistocene on both sides of the Mediterranean Sea. Amongst the main issues to be identified so far are : How early is “Modern Behaviour” seen in this region, does its appearance signify the arrival of new populations and what is the environmental context of human cultures. The aim of the workshop is not to answer all of these questions but to stimulate further discussion and to act as an introduction to other contributions that will cover the themes described above in more detail.

The workshop will consist of scientists from leading institutions in their own countries and their participation in the workshop will provide expertise and will also allow new networks to be built between both researchers and the new generation of early career scientists and Aix-Marseille University students. This workshop therefore offers opportunities for knowledge transfer and to develop the future research career prospects.

Session 1 : Palaeoanthropology
Session 2 : Climate and Chronology
Session 3 : Archaeology in the Northern Mediterranean
Session 4 : Archaeology in North Africa
Session 5 : Paleoenvironment and subsistence
