Animals and Borders

We are thrilled to be hosting the second meeting of the Northern Animals research collective, titled “Animals and Borders”, on Friday 13 October.

The day-long outreach event will feature a tour of Leeds Discovery Centre’s taxidermy collections and a public reading by South African author Henrietta Rose-Innes, whose latest novel Green Lion (2015) considers conservation, ecological anxieties, and bereavement.

All welcome; please share with anyone who may be interested. Full programme and details to follow soon.

This event is generously co-sponsored by the University of Leeds’s Institute for Colonial and Postcolonial Studies (ICPS) and International Writers at Leeds (IWAL).
