The 82nd Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists (2013)


Session 37. Concepts and Realities - Humans in Time and Space: Papers in honor of Fred Hines Smith. Invited Poster Symposium. Chair: James Ahern and Ivor Jankovic

Friday Afternoon, 200DE Add to calendar

Fred Hines Smith, former AAPA president, has had a lasting influence on various fields of research on human origins and evolution. His conceptual ideas and models, his meticulous studies of fossils, his involvement in the development of the field of paleoanthropology in Croatia, his influence on generations of students, many of which are now scholars of human origins themselves, are just some among many contributions that he had over the years. This year’s AAPA meetings are held in Fred’s home state and in the place where he first held an academic position.  Furthermore, the sequel to one of Fred’s most influential works (edited with Frank Spencer), Origins of Modern Humans: A World Survey of the Fossil Evidence is in publication.  Thus, it is now appropriate to honor Fred’s many contributions. This symposium brings together an array of papers that all share a common theme that has been central to Fred’s work: conceptual understanding built upon detailed analyses of human biology in time and space.  Reflecting Fred’s own body of work, many of the contributions are on later human evolution, while some focus on variation and evolution of more recent populations.
