About the Event

This event is presented by Resources for the Future with the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History as part of an ongoing series, Anthropocene: Life in the Age of Humans.

The National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) and Resources for the Future invite you to join NMNH archaeologist Melinda Zeder as she brings together genetics, animal sciences, and archaeology to trace the diverse and continuing pathways that humans and their animal partners traveled into domestication.

Learning how and when humans and animals first embarked on these journeys—and tracing the twists and turns they took along the way—is vital to understanding where we come from, how we arrived where we are today, and where these pathways will lead us in the future.
