An international, interdisciplinary conference will be held in Rheims (France) Thursday and Friday, November 9-10, 2006 on the Wolf in Europe from Middle Ages to Present. The discussion will not have to be centered on the symbolic system of the wolf in the West. We initially seek to assess what we can know of the relationship maintained through time between human communities and wolves, and on the conflicts between these two species of predator relative to their natural surroundings. The history of the wolves of Europe is closely related to the modifications which men imposed on their environment.
Scientific directors: Fabrice Guizard-Duchamp, Maitre de Conferences histoire Medievale University of Valenciennes, Jerome Buridant, Maitre de Conferences histoire Moderne University of Reims.
