The 1st Human Traces workshop will be held online from 25-27 May 2021.


Each day will focus on a specific region, and therefore have a similar structure. The three-hour workshop will include a short presentation of the working group, three 15-minutes talks, a short break, an open discussion in breakout rooms, and a final synthesis.
May 25: The Americas – 16:00-19:00 UTC
May 26: Europe, Africa, West Asia – 08:00-11:00 UTC
May 27: Central Asia, East Asia, Australasia – 03:00-06:00 UTC

Leaders will send out a survey mid-April in preparation for the workshop, to gather your input, ideas, questions, etc.

The final program, including titles and speakers, will be available 1 May.

Be involved!

Contact Nathalie Dubois (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Remember to include the topic of your presentation, the region of interest, and whether you are an early-career researcher.

About the working group

The PAGES Human Traces working group, which launched in January 2021, focuses on the long legacy of pre-Anthropocene human impacts. How do they manifest themselves in different parts of the world, and in different stratigraphic records?

Human Traces aims to address the knowledge gap about spatial and temporal variations in early human impacts, with the overarching goal to create a global synthesis of human traces in geologic archives.
