Animals and humans during the war
I am giving a paper on : The shifting animal – human relationship during the Second World War in Britain: going beyond an incorporation of non-human animals into human history at the Cosmopolitan Animals Conference being held at the Institute of English Studies at Senate House, University of London on October 26 -7, 2012.
I am looking at the way the relationship between humans and ‘pets’ changed and argue that this is not simply an add-on to existing histories but implies a re-thinking of ways in which the Second World War is seen.
Keynote speakers include Donna Haraway and Simon Glendinning
