The Department of Historical Studies at the University of Bristol is holding a one day workshop relating to the theme of Animals and Empire. Animal studies is an emerging field within the arts and humanities, transcending disciplinary boundaries in its investigation of the relationships between humans and other animals in subjects such as history, philosophy and literature.
This workshop centres on the role of animals and the place of human-animal relationships in the history of the British Empire. It may include papers relating to the following themes:
- Animality and race
- Animal exhibition
- Conservation in the post-colonial world
- Animals in empire fiction
- Wild animal trade
The workshop itself will take place on 13 June 2013, with a lecture from Professor William Beinart to be given at the Bristol Zoo Gardens the preceding evening.
February 28, 2013, 5:00pm BST
