Please join us to celebrate Professor Keridiana Chez’s new publication, "Victorian Dogs, Victorian Men: Affect and Animals in Nineteenth Century Literature and Culture."
About the Book
Chez traces the evolution of the human-dog relationship as it developed parallel to an increasingly imperialist national discourse. Reading the work of Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Margaret Marshall Saunders, Bram Stoker, and Jack London, Victorian Dogs, Victorian Men charts the mobilization of affect through transatlantic narratives, demonstrating the deep interconnections between animals, affect, and gender.
