Natural Science Seminar: Human Responses to the Last Glacial Maximum in the Transbaikal 6/6 4:00pm SCIE 147

Friday, Jun 6, 2014
4:00 pm


Please come join us THIS FRIDAY for the final Natural Science Seminar of Spring 2014!  It will be held June 6th at 4:00pm-5:00pm in Science 147.

Dr. Ian Buvit, the CWU McNair Program Director, will be sharing his scholarship on "Human Responses to the Last Glacial Maximum in the Transbaikal (Southern Siberia)."  Globally, humans reacted to the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) (22-18 ka) in different ways. In Siberia, Buvit finds clear shifts in technology and social organization. He will discuss the environmental conditions of the LGM in the Transbaikal region, and the archaeological evidence of how humans coped in one of the most challenging places on Earth, during one of the most disruptive times in the history of our existence.

The Natural Science Seminar Series talks are open to everyone.  The series is sponsored by the Department of Biological Sciences and the College of the Sciences. Visitor parking permits are available to community members who would like to attend.  Please contact the Biological Sciences Dept. at (509) 963-2731 by 12:00pm on the day of the seminar to make arrangements.
