Geopolitics of Early Human Migrations: Land, Terrain and Territory

The presentation takes a Big History approach to understanding Early Human Migrations and dispersal out of Africa across all continents of the world. We begin by creating a framework for our analysis based on anthropology and political geography. We apply it to the broad swathe of human history beginning around 250,000 years ago and ending with the Neolithic Revolution and the beginning of agriculture at roughly 12,000 BC.
