Honors Presents: Ms. Nancy Mahoney-When We Became Human
- Wednesday, September 1, 2021 from 4:30pm to 6:00pm
- Byker Auditorium
Understanding how and when the human species evolved the traits that make us distinct from all other animals requires a scientific and anthropological approach to data from both the deep past as well as contemporary societies of humans and other primates. An overview of the four subfields of anthropology will be employed to summarize recent and surprising findings related to human biological and cultural evolution, including material from linguistics, archaeology, primatology, paleoanthropology, and cultural anthropology.
Nancy Mahoney has been an instructor in Anthropology at MSU for over a decade. She holds a Masters's in Anthropology and has worked on archaeological field projects in Cyprus, Morocco, Turkey, New Mexico, Utah, and Montana. Nancy sometimes collaborates with her husband Ian van Coller (Professor of Photographer at MSU) on projects involving human impacts on the environment and scientific records of deep-time climate change, She is the co-host of the Extreme History podcast "The Dirt on the Past" and the owner of Mōka Boutique in downtown Bozeman. She has two children, two dogs, and one ferret, all of which keep her busy and happy.
