Project Details


Apes and Angels is a research group at the University of Edinburgh with a focus on human-animal relations in the early modern world, (c. 1500-1859). It was set up in the summer of 2012 and involves members of staff from across the humanities, the creative arts, science and veterinary medicine.
Our common interest lies in investigating the nature of “human” and “animal” in Europe, both within the historical and contemporary contexts.
