Animal Metropolis

Book launch, in English, CCA bookstore, 1 April 3pm

Historians are beginning to take animals seriously. Three contributors to Animal Metropolis: Histories of Human-Animal Relations in Urban Canada (University of Calgary Press, 2017) discuss their research in the growing field. Sherry Olson (McGill University) will speak on how nineteenth-century horses shaped the streets of Montreal; Christabelle Sethna (University of Ottawa), on the memorialization of Jumbo the elephant in Saint Thomas, Ontario; and Joanna Dean (Carleton University), on the assemblage of tetanus, horses, humans, and guinea pigs in Toronto’s Connaught Laboratories.

This launch is held in conjunction with the exhibition It’s All Happening So Fast: A Counter-History of the Modern Canadian Environment.
