Please join us for a special panel celebrating the launch of Animalia: An Anti-Imperial Bestiary for our Time (Duke University Press, November 2020). Described by reviewers as "quirky...intriguing and exhilarating" the book conveys "the surprising importance of all sorts of species to the imperial project" from whales to tigers, dogs to scorpions, and unicorns to platypus.

Speakers include the editors, along with contributors Harriet Ritvo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Daniel Heath Justice (University of British Columbia), Dane Kennedy (George Washington University), Utathya Chattopadhyaya (University of California, Santa Barbara), Jonathan Goldberg-Hiller (University of Hawai'i at Manoa), and commentator Teresa Mangum (University of Iowa).
