Animals, Evolution and the Victorians

The question, "What makes us human?" has a perennial fascination. This talk will explore how the Victorians, concerned about the impact of evolution on religious beliefs, considered the boundary between humans and other animals.

Emma Swain is completing her PhD at Queen’s University Belfast on Victorian science, and the relationship between humans and animals, in religious periodicals.
