Dr. Ivan Kreilkamp studies pets. As a professor in the Department of English, he researches animal representation in Victorian-era literature, with a special focus on the domestication of dogs and other pets. He also studies the earliest days of the animal rights movement and how it influenced literature of the era (and vice versa).
