Was Jack the Ripper a slaughterman? Unexpected journeys in animal welfare
Professor Andrew Knight’s inaugural lecture: Was Jack the Ripper a slaughterman? Unexpected journeys in animal welfare
A career in animal welfare can take one to some very interesting and unexpected places indeed. Join Professor Andrew Knight as he recounts his adventures in animal welfare, which have involved climbing a Caribbean volcano with some most unusual equipment, swimming with sea turtles, and generally adventuring around the world. He’ll summarise his recent research projects, which have involved being insulted by a bionic donkey named Ruth, examining the effects of Oceanarium confinement on killer whales, assessing whether cats can thrive on vegetarian diets, and, most recently, considering the unsettling case of Jack the Ripper. There is very good reason to believe he might have actually been a slaughterman…
Enjoy an unforgettable evening, and discover why animal welfare is one of the most exciting academic fields at Winchester!
This event is free to attend and starts at 6:30pm at The University of Winchester, with light refreshments served from 6pm.
