Animal History Group

The Animal History Group was founded in 2016 as a network to connect all those involved with animals in history, whether through academia, museums and archives, animal-focused professions or simply general interest. For the 2020-21 academic year we have moved online and planned our activities to respond to the new challenges and opportunities of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently UK-based but actively welcome participation from our international colleagues.

Our network is centred around a programme of monthly seminars and this year we are also launching a new Book Club and Works in Progress Feedback Group. Click below to find out more:
