Cats, Cattle, and Corn: On the Origin of Domesticated Species

First-Year Seminar Program 197

Usual Description

Have you ever wondered how agriculture arose? Or why dogs bark but wolves don’t? This course will cover the evolution of domesticated species, from cattle and corn to dogs and cats. We will discuss the process of domestication and how it has influenced the evolution and spread of humans across the planet. Other possible topics include genetic engineering, our relationship with our domesticates, and the future of food production.
