For my M.A. in Cultural Anthropology I choose to study human-human conflict surrounding the wolf reintroduction in Idaho, ultimately interviewing the Nez Perce, Ranchers and Conservationists. Let’s just say it was an “innovative idea” to propose to study wolves as an anthropologist but my thesis proved that 78% of wolf conflicts were human-human conflicts about wolves as opposed to actual conflicts with wolves. This was pretty awesome at the time if you ask me, considering this was around 2009. Below are links to a published article, my thesis and my old blog as well as some photos.
