TED Talks With Group Discussion
Since their emergence over 200,000 years ago, modern humans have established communities all over the planet. But they didn't do it alone.
Whatever corner of the globe you find humans in today, you're likely to find another species as well: dogs. So how did one of our oldest rivals, the wolf, evolve into man's best friend?
During this TED Talk, David Ian Howe traces the history of humanity's first domesticated animal. Our host and dog expert Patricia Nemirovsky Alsina will add her own take!
Join us for another “TED Talks Penn’s Village,” in which program participants view a TED Talk together and then discuss it with the help of a social host who will stimulate and guide conversation. TED Talks (Technology, Entertainment, Design) are presentations from around the world in which people with a passion for a subject share that love with their audiences.
