Unravelling Human Origins conference

Posted on 5 December 2018

The Unravelling Human Origins conference will be taking place at the University of York, 15th-16th February 2019.

Unravelling Human Origins is a multidisciplinary, student-run conference aimed at discussing new advances in human evolution research.

The call for papers is now open! We welcome both papers (15 min long) and posters, particularly related to the following themes:

·  Origins of art, symbolism and cognitive evolution

·  Demography, life history and social evolution

·  Anatomy, energetics and morphology

·  Technology and innovation

·  Diet, mobility and subsistence

·  Diversity in the Palaeolithic (e.g. age, gender, cognitive/psychological diversity, (dis)ability, inclusivity within human origins research)

·  Novel methodological and theoretical approaches (e.g. experimental archaeology, analogy, bioarchaeology)

Submissions from students and early career researchers are particularly encouraged. The deadline for abstract submissions is Monday 17th December. Registration will open on 7th December.

We are pleased to announce the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists have kindly agreed to sponsor 5 places for students and unwaged delegates. If you will be attending both days of the conference and would like to be considered for a free conference ticket, please get in touch with the conference team. We will let you know if you have been successful by 21st December.
