Current Research & Projects

Current research involves two related topics. The first focuses the images of dogs in literature and painting from 1670 to 1840. The second project focuses on the cultural reception of foxes in naturalist writing, myths and folklore, consumerism, and, of course, in the development of foxhunting.
