HOT (Human Origins Today) Topic - How humans survive in extreme environments [ONLINE]
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? In this webinar, Dr. Cara Ocobock, Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Human Energetics Laboratory at University of Notre Dame, explores 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 Zoom webinar with Cara Ocobock aired November 18, 2021 as part of the ongoing "HOT (Human Origins Today) Topic" series. Watch a recording here.
