Get Lit! Gifts of the Crow: A Presentation by John Marzluff

Humans have long been fascinated by crows. They show up in our cave paintings, our language (“to eat crow,” crowbar, etc.) and our art (Nevermore, anyone?). The influence of crows on our culture is undeniable, but Marzluff argues that this influence is a two-way street. His latest book, Gifts of the Crow (Free Press, 2012) presents his fascinating theory of “cultural co-evolution.” Not only have crows made an indelible mark on our culture, but Marzluff also shows how crows seem to share particularly human behaviors such as language, delinquency, risk-taking, and more. His research is accompanied by the illustration of longtime collaborator Tony Angell.
