Anthropology 101. Human Evolution

Discoveries related to human and cultural evolution are constantly changing our view of where we came from and how we got to be the way we are. This course considers the latest findings and controversies concerning evolutionary theory, our relationship to apes, our sexuality, bipedalism and capacity for language, the relevance of “race,” our links to Neanderthals, the development of what we call civilization and other topics.
