Dogs past & present : an interdisciplinary perspective

Congrès, colloques, réunions


14-16 novembre 2018
Rome - National Research Council




Dogs are a crucial partner in 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 untile the present day.


This conference aims to create a platform for the exchange of practical and theoretical approaches for scholars from different fields of research (genetics, archaeozoology, archaeology, ethnoarchaeology, ethnography, anthropology, folklore and ethnomusicology) in order to reach a real interdisciplinary perspective on the history of dogs which will be pivotal for the future of research in this field.
