Aims

publié le , mis à jour le

The structure of the meeting is to present state-of-art research continent by continent since, as a matter of fact, the research of many colleagues is geographically focused. Our objective is to contribute examples and ideas that will drive further integration of molecular anthropology and other research fields and disciplines. Particular attention will be given to the impact of new analytical methods but also, and more traditionally, to updated and comprehensive syntheses about human diversity since browsing the ever growing literature requires an enormous time that acts as a barrier among specialists of different areas.

The last day will be devoted to human evolutionary research in an interdisciplinary frame. Theories and approaches will be discussed in a challenging way by putting face-to-face molecular anthropologists and experts from other disciplines. We are putting much energy in organizing such latter session since we would like to emphasize the dangers of the hyper specialization mentioned above.
