“Reading Animals” at the University of Sheffield June 2nd, 2014

A few months ago I accepted an invitation to present a keynote talk at the upcoming ”Reading Animals” conference, which will take place at the University of Sheffield in July.  Entitled “‘More Savage than Bears or Wolves’: Animals, Animality, and the ‘Indian Atlantic,’” my talk–which I’m currently writing–examines the ways in which European and Indigenous writers depicted Native American hunters, and the animals they hunted, during the long nineteenth century.  Prominent among my paper’s Indigenous voices are the Ojibwe writers Peter Jones and George Copway.  It will be good to return to England for this conference and to learn from the many fine Animals Studies scholars who will be in attendance.
