Non-human Kith and Kin: A Zoological Tour


Included in the exhibition Seized by the Left Hand is a curated display of artefacts from the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum, which is housed within the University of Dundee. This display highlights specimens from the animal kingdom that beautifully resist normative categorisation when it comes to gender, sexuality, bonding and kinship.

Join us for a tour with the museum’s curator Matthew Jarron, beginning in the galleries at DCA before moving to the University’s Zoology Museum (five minutes’ walk) to see further fascinating specimens from around the world, most of them collected by renowned Scottish biologist, mathematician and classics scholar Sir D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson (1860 – 1948).
