Dr Violette Pouillard received her PhD from the Free University of Brussels and the University of Lyon in 2015. Her doctoral dissertation, entitled In captivity. Human policies and animal lives in zoological gardens from the nineteenth century to the present time (Paris Ménagerie, London Zoo, Antwerp Zoo), aimed at reconsidering the history of zoos by paying attention to both human policies and their effects on animal lives. Her current research focuses on the management of colonial fauna and she has been awarded a Wiener-Anspach Foundation postdoctoral fellowship in order to study the imperial supply of African fauna to the London Zoo (1828-c. 1960).
