Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course is designed as “Ringvorlesung”, meaning that 11 different speakers per semester will introduce aspects of their special fields (11 other speakers will talk in winter semester). All topics have in common that they are important in the context of human evolution and archaeological science, as it is realized in our research network HEAS. We target this course to all interested students from all branches of study to induce thinking across borders and interdisciplinary work. The summer semester course will include Human Evolution, Neolithization, Human Behavioural Biology, Paleoproteomics, Landscape & Archaeological Prospection, Environmental Geochemistry, Textile Research, Material Culture, Ceramology, Kinship, Mobility, Gender Archaeology, Stone tools and Hominin Behaviour, Isotope Physics, Spectrometry, Fieldwork, and Site Formation. The course is a lecture designed as front-of-class teaching given in German or English language, depending on the German proficiencies of the respective speaker.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written test (multiple choice) in German language. No aids allowed.
