CALL. 31.05.2018: Dogs, past & present, 1st International Conference - Roma (Italy)
Dogs are a crucial partner of humankind.
When, where, how and why were dogs domesticated?
What is their story?
What is their role in traditional and non-traditional societies today?
Dog domestication and its success in prehistory and the role of dogs in the history of humankind are complex themes, which are currently being studied and discussed by scholars of various disciplines. In the last few years, data and hypotheses have progressively increased, sometimes controversially, in various fields of investigation. However, a lack of exchange between scholars of different backgrounds has hampered a real advance in the study of the connections between humans and dogs in history until the present day.
