Where Did We Come From? Where Are We Headed? Professor Maps Past, Present and Future of the Human Life

AnthropologyCome along with Michael R. Zimmerman, M.D., Ph.D., on a trip through time and geographic space. The journey will begin with ape-like creatures that turned onto a unique road in eastern Africa some four to five million years ago and end with some predictions for the coming centuries and millennia.

Will we become half-human, half-computer? Will our brains become smaller as we turn over more intellectual and memory functions to computer chips? Will we follow the course of over 99% of all species and become extinct? Hear what Dr. Zimmerman has to say about these intriguing questions on Tue., Apr. 14, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. in Falvey’s first floor lounge.

Dr. Zimmerman’s research in paleopathology, the study of the evidence of disease in ancient remains, has resulted in numerous publications and speaking engagements.┬áHis work has also been seen on the History Channel and Fox News.

The presentation is part of the Fourth Annual Anthropology Lecture Series, “The Science of Humanity: Tongues, Stones, and Bones,” sponsored by Falvey.
