Description


Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human characteristics to objects, events or nonhuman animals. How do we consider an animal’s point of view while guarding against inappropriate use of anthropomorphism? This presentation pulls from various disciplines to explore: how and why we anthropomorphize, the implications of anthropomorphisms, physical and behavioral prompts to anthropomorphisms and exciting behavioral research investigating a notable anthropomorphism.
