To kick off the 2017 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences in Toronto, Ontario, I joined two of the editors of a new volume on histories of human-animal relations in urban Canada published by University of Calgary Press. Joanna Dean and Christabelle Sethna invited me to join them to discuss this new open-access book and to have a broader discussion about the history of animals and cities.

Listeners can download a free e-book copy of Animal Metropolis: Histories of Human-Animal Relations in Urban Canada right here.
