Cobbler's Stall, Great Ormond Street; a small shack on the pavement, built against the side of a wall beneath a shop window, within the shack and visible through an open window sits a cobbler, working on a shoe, in the street outside there are chickens, and to the left a small dog sits on the steps leading up to a doorway.  1850  Watercolour with bodycolour over graphite


We seek to better understand the relationship between humans and animals in the past and present, and combine our research and teaching with policy work and public engagement.

We hold regular seminars at the main University of Liverpool campus and the Leahurst Vet School (Wirral). Please see the Events page for more information.
