On Thursday 30 November 2017 from 1 p.m to 4 p.m., the Wilson Institute for Canadian History and Tracy McDonald (Department of History, McMaster) are hosting an Afternoon of Animal Studies. This afternoon gathering is the first of what we hope to be more Animal Studies events at McMaster that will cross departments and disciplines. We hope to gauge the degree to which our colleagues at McMaster and beyond are interested in the world of Animal Studies. With that agenda in mind, we have invited six scholars with a wide range of interests to talk to us about their particular focus of scholarly engagement with animals. Rather than a large, formal event, this event is an open and more casual afternoon. We encourage anyone in the academic community and the community at large who has an interest in Animal Studies to join us for our first discussion.
