Anthropological Models for a Reconstruction of the First African Frontier
This project develops anthropological models of the „First African Fron-tier“. The “First African Frontier” here relates to movements of hunter-gatherers within and out of Africa before and beyond the dynamics of the expansion of agropastoralist peoples that is known as the “internal African frontier”. The conceptual and comparative research proposed for the third phase builds on the empirical basis provided by three completed field projects and agent-based simulations.In the third phase the focus will be on the theoretical and conceptual challenges emerging from a comparative study of the cultural models of mobility as entertained by hunter-gatherers themselves.
