Dogs from Wolves: What We’re Learning from Science About the Evolution of Dogs and What It Means to Us

Thursday, Apr 11, 2013 1:00p to 2:30p

Featured Speaker: Karla Armbruster, Ph.D., Professor of English and Chair, Sustainability Studies Committee, Webster University

Learn more about “man’s best friend” and the recent anthropological and genetic research on when, where, and how the dog evolved. Take a look at how various writers, including Jack London, Old Yeller author Fred Gipson, and Donald McCaig have used the idea of the dog’s wild ancestors to support sometimes competing visions of the relationship between nature and humans.
