- How Grains Domesticated Us
James C. Scott (Sterling Professor of Political Science and Professor of Anthropology and Co-Director of the Agrarian Studies Program, Yale University)
In this lecture, Scott asks how homo sapiens came, only in the last 5% of its long career on the planet, to live in concentrated heaps of people, grain, and domesticated animals and, later, to be governed by units we call states. He will argue that virtually all classical states were based on grains, which are suited to concentrated production, tax assessment, cadastral surveys, storage, and rationing.
