From Colonisation to Globalisation

Species Movements in Human History, Paris, October 4 – 7, 2013.

This conference was organised by Michael Petraglia, Nicole Boivin and Remy Crassard, and held in Paris, France.  The conference centred on ideas that emerged from two independent European Research Council-funded projects, the Sealinks Project and the Palaeodeserts Project.

The conference explored the role played by humans in moving various species around the globe from the Palaeolithic era through to historical times.  The conference was supported by the Fysseb Foundation. The conference brought together archaeologists, geneticists, geographers, biologists, historians and others to Paris for a 3-day conference.  The conference is being published by Cambridge University Press, see Here.  For the original schedule, see here: PDF
