We are delighted to announce that the Animal History Group will be holding a two-day conference in London on 28-29 June 2018, to conclude our 2017–18 programme of events. The Animal History Group is the London-based network for postgraduates, academics, museum workers and other professionals whose work engages with animals in history.

We are honored to welcome Dolly Jørgensen, Professor of History at the University of Stavanger, Norway, as our keynote speaker. Dolly is a historian of the environment and technology, whose research topics have ranged from medieval butchery to ecological restoration in modern Scandinavia. Her keynote address will discus: 'Entangled Ecologies and Hidden Histories: The Case of the Humble Beaver Beetle'.

Registration is available either for the full conference, or for single day attendance on either the Thursday or Friday, and a reduced registration fee is available for unwaged/student attendees. We are also hosting a conference dinner on Thursday evening, to which all conference attendees are warmly invited - tickets for the dinner can be booked with your registration. This will be a buffet dinner with a welcome drink at The Crusting Pipe, in Covent Garden. If you have any particular dietary requirements, please let us know as soon as possible by email, at
