Jacky Collis Harvey – Cheltenham Science Festival


June 9, 2019


We love our pets. Making an animal part of the family seems to be something only humans do. Keeping them is expensive, time-consuming, and seemingly irrational – so why do so many of us have an animal in our lives? Acclaimed cultural detective and lifelong pet owner Jacky Colliss Harvey and anthrozoologist John Bradshaw explore the true nature and depth of this long-standing human animal love-affair and discuss Collis Harvey’s new book, The Animal Companion.
