harvard Professor Michael McCormick on "The Science of the Human Past" Sold Out
Join us for a riveting discussion with Professor Michael McCormick, Chair of Harvard's Initiative for the Science of the Human Past, who will share how 21st century science is revolutionizing what we know about our ancestors back to our first migration out of Africa and down to American pioneer life.
A charismatic lecturer famed for his required office hours and dedication to Harvard undergraduates, Professor McCormick also leads the Initiative for the Science of Human Past, a trans-school project that brings together geneticists, computer scientists, climate scientists, human evolutionary biologists, historians, and archaeologists. From ancient DNA to ice cores, 21st century science is revolutionizing what we know about our ancestors, from our first migration out of Africa and to American pioneer life. Harvard’s Initiative for the Science of the Human Past is at the international forefront of this research. Incorporating the new knowledge into teaching and incorporating Harvard students into discovering the new knowledge shows the power of integrating a liberal arts education and our students into the most advanced work of a great research university. Spoiler alert: it’s not only the students who benefit!
