Going to the Dogs?

A Workshop Series on Research at the Intersection of Disability and Animal Studies

This week I gave a lecture on medieval guide dogs at the ‘Going to the Dogs’ workshop at Leeds University. The aim of this workshop was to respond to recent scholarship that has placed disability and animal studies in critical dialogue (such as Sunaura Taylor’s Beasts of Burden: Animal and Disability Liberation).

You can find a recording of my paper, ‘Companions, Servants, or Signifiers: The Role of Assistance Dogs in the Late Middle Ages’, below.
