Students explore the cross-cultural history of pet keeping. With a substantive focus on research around the coevolution of dogs and humans, as opposed to the latecomer cats, who apparently agree to live with us because it suits them, students consider such ideas as domestication, wildness, and the problems of feral animals; the economic and environmental implications of pet keeping; and the dilemma of keeping lions and tigers in our back yards.
