Wolf Children – The Natural History of Culture and Care

Lars Risan
Anthropologe, Oslo
Der Vortrag wird auf ENGLISCH gehalten.

In this lecture I will speak about the unlikely and difficult lives of two girls who lived in West Bengal, India, in the 1920ies. These two girls reportedly had the extraordinary experience of moving – bodily, emotionally and cognitively – from a wolf culture to a human culture. It was not an easy journey. By wolf culture I mean the actual culture of a wolf pack. What, then, does the phrase “wolf culture” mean?
