The Long Haul: Stories of Human Migration

Exploredia Ten Great Migrations
For more than 200,000 years, Homo sapiens have been moving around the planet, sometimes drawn and sometimes driven by a host of natural and man-made forces: drought, floods, crop failure, war, the quest for survival, or the hope of a better future.

Examine the roots and the routes of human migration from our beginnings in Africa, and trace our oft-branching journey into the 21st century.

What happens when vast numbers of our fellow humans are on the move?

Led by scholar David Fenner, this talk explores the push and pull factors that cause human migration, which in turn can help us understand more fully events in the headlines and better know the mosaic of peoples who have settled in the Pacific Northwest.

Sponsored by the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau.

Saturday, January 20, 2018, 2 - 3:30pm, Shoreline Library large meeting room 345 NE 175th St, Shoreline 98155.
