(also ARKEO 4267 )(HB) (HA-AS)
Fall. 4 credits.

N. Russell.

This course will examine the origins of plant and animal domestication and the profound social transformations that accompanied this innovation in several areas of the world. While we will consider the evidence for domestication, the focus will be on critical analysis of the models offered to explain the origins of agriculture. A comparative perspective will help us to evaluate whether there is a single universal explanation for agricultural origins.
