ANTR-1401 Antropología Biológica
This course provides the basic concepts of Biological Anthropology: definition, history and scope of the discipline. The first part reviews aspects regarding the topic of biological evolution, which are essential for the formulation of evolutionary theories. The second, with a biocultural perspective, analyzes the processes of biological and cultural evolution, emphasizing certain events from the evolutionary process that have marked the development of humanity. It necessarily mentions concrete evidence on the evolutionary process, but the course is aimed at discussing the paths and repercussions involved in these changes rather than specific data. Students have the chance to become familiar with the analysis of human remains and Forensic Anthropology in a theoretic-practical manner.
