1-2pm. With Professor Harriet Ritvo. 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, Professor Ritvo reflects on her work and its impact in the last quarter century.
This talk is part of the programme of events linked to the Museum’s exhibition Breed: The British & their Dogs. There will be an opportunity to visit the exhibition after the talk.
Professor Ritvo’s visit and talk is supported by an AHRC Project Grant – The Dog Fancy and Fancy Dogs in Victorian Britain held in CHSTM.
