Domestication Stories

In Through the Lens of Anthropology, there is an attempt to understand Domestication Stories, or those narratives that we tell about domestication. For Intro to Anthro 2022, after discussing human expansions, we read the second of three parts of chapter 6, from the subheading “The Transition to Food Production” up until the subheading “Settlement and Technology.”

We compared this account of domestication with the “Worst Mistake in the History of the Human Race” by Jared Diamond.

We talked about these issues in the next class, Domesticating Experiments.
