Jordan Special Collections: "I Always Speak to Dogs and Cats"

Permanent URI for this collection

This exhibit examines the intersection between Victorian children’s literature and the emergent animal rights movement in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Working closely with W.D. Jordan Rare Books and Special Collections—particularly the Children’s Literature Collection and Edith and Lorne Pierce Collection of Canadiana—we have curated a selection of critical texts in both traditions: Victorian children’s literature and reform writings on the humane treatment of non-human animals. We are especially interested in contributions to this literary conversation by Canadian women writers L. M. Montgomery and Marshall Saunders. Co-curated by Michaela Wipond (Ph.D. Candidate, English) and Dr. S. Brooke Cameron (Associate Professor, English), featuring items from the collections of W.D. Jordan Rare Books and Special Collections, Queen's University Library.
