*POSTPONED: New date will be selected soon*
$245 in-person | $145 virtual
The French saying, “The Hour Between Dog and Wolf,” refers to the hours of dusk when it is hard to differentiate a wolf from a dog. In this seminar we will explore this grey area between two closely related but often behaviorally and cognitively quite different species. The seminar will start by reviewing the latest findings from archeology and archaeogenetics on the origins of dogs, before focusing on the nature of the dog-human relationship and how dogs differ from their wolf ancestors in the formation of affectionate bonds.
