Virtual Lunchtime Lecture: 19th-Century Petkeeping

January 6, 2021

Join us for our monthly discussion of an aspect of life in early 19th-century America. This month we will discuss the evolution of keeping pets, and explore questions such as: Was this a common practice in the 1800s? Why or why not? What pets were popular? What was the relationship between pets and new ideas of child rearing? Free.

If you want a photo of your pet included in a collage that we will share at the end of the lecture, email it to [email protected] by January 6.

Q: Where does it take place?⁣⁣
A: Good ole’ Zoom! Links will be sent upon registration.
⁣⁣
Q: Is it okay if I come late for the Drink + Draw?⁣⁣
A: Yes! The event is ‘drop-in’ style, so come through any time between 7-9:30pm. Stay for as long as you can!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Q: Do we have to share our drawings?⁣⁣
A: Not at all! In between sets, we spent about 5 minutes sharing our drawings (i.e. holding them up to the screen and being spotlit). It’s a very supportive environment, as folks often say encouraging words about the drawings. However, this is totally optional – if you’d prefer not to share, that is absolutely okay!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Q: Is it free?⁣⁣
A: Yes! If you’re in the position to support, we do have a $5-20 suggested donation, which goes towards tipping the models. All the models are volunteering their time, so this is very appreciated. However, no one is turned away due to lack of funds, and you can show gratitude to the models in other ways: sharing your drawings, following their creative practices, etc.⁣⁣
