Author Biography

Daniel Vandersommers

Daniel Vandersommers is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of History at The Ohio State University.  He is completing a dissertation entitled Laboratories, Lyceums, Lords: The National Zoological Park and the Transformation of Humanism in Nineteenth-Century America. This project, by closely examining the first decades of the National Zoo, links intellectual and cultural history with environmental history and the history of science, arguing that the public zoo movement and the rise of popular zoology significantly challenged common notions about animals and their place in the world.
