Hominins

For Introduction to Anthropology 2020 we concentrated on bipedalism and hominins with two readings:

  • “Human Biological Evolution” in Through the Lens of Anthropology (note: link is to the 3rd edition, but page numbers and quotes for this class are to the 2nd edition).
  • Berger, Lee R., et al. “Homo naledi and Pleistocene hominin evolution in subequatorial Africa.” eLife (2017)

This class followed on the general principles of Evolutionary Theory and concluded the unit on Biological Anthropology and Evolution.




Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together. This blog is a personal project of Jason Antrosio, author of Fast, Easy, and In Cash: Artisan Hardship and Hope in the Global Economy.
