|What is it:||Lecture|
In 1986 Professor Ritvo published The Animal Estate: The English and Other Creatures in the Victorian Age, a book that broke new ground in Victorian Studies and stimulated the development of Animal Studies as an area of research and teaching. In this lecture, Profesor Ritvo reflects on her work and its impact in the last quarter century. This lecture is part of the programme of events linked to Manchester Museum's new exhibition Breed: The British and Their Dogs. There will be an opportunity to visit the Exhibition after the lecture.
Professor Ritvo's visit and lecture is supported by an AHRC Project Grant - The Dog Fancy and Fancy Dogs in Victorian Britain held in CHSTM.
