In this course, students will examine the biological basis for genetic, temporal, and geographic variation within modern humans and human ancestors. Major areas of coverage will include the scientific method, human genetics and heredity, evolutionary theory, archaeological methods, primate taxonomy, primate and hominin evolution, the hominin fossil record, and the prehistoric archaeological evidence for cultural evolution. Modern human variation, including adaptive responses to stress and the use (and abuse) of racialized taxonomies will also be examined.
