Migration is of all times. The stormy new developments in the field of archeo-genetics have recently enabled us to map the history of human migration with a precision that was not or hardly conceivable until 2015. Nevertheless, the new and often unexpected discoveries raise all kinds of further questions. Does genetics tell the whole story? Can we regard migration as the engine of history? Or does migration as a historical phenomenon not have a more complicated structure? On 27 October, Professor Leonard Rutgers (History and Art History) will answer these questions during Big History #6.
This event is part of the serie 'Big History' organized in collaboration with TivoliVredenburg, The Centre for Humanities and the Centre for Global Challenges. For more information and other editions, please visit Big History #6 (in Dutch).
