How Humans Survive in Extreme EnvironmentsWebcasts & Online
Thursday, November 18, 2021, 11:30am – 12:30pm EST
Mount Everest, the Sahara Desert, and the Arctic Circle - these are just some of the extremes humans experience. But how have humans evolved to live in such a broad range of environments?
Cara Ocobock, Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Human Energetics Laboratory at University of Notre Dame, will explore how humans have biologically, culturally, and technologically overcome these extremes in order to survive and thrive in some of the globe’s most inhospitable environments.
Moderator: Briana Pobiner, paleoanthropologist and educator at Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.
This program is offered as part of the ongoing HOT (Human Origins Today) Topic series.
This program will be presented as a Zoom video webinar. A link will be emailed to all registrants.
