Leaving home: how can historic human movements inform the future?
2012 (English)In: Climate change and human mobility: global challenges to the social sciences / [ed] Hastrup, K; Olwig, KF, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2012, 23-34 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter offers an overview of the history of human migration, conditions pertaining to past migrations, and the types of evidence that allow their study. The importance of scales of time and space is illustrated by 'standing still' for a thousand years at a busy crossroads in Europe, and observing the emergence of new social forms. How can these observations help to anticipate and formulate responses to contemporary population movements?
