The Institute for Historical Studies (IHS) is hosting a workshop titled "Urban Metabolism in Victorian England" by Robyn Metcalfe, a research fellow in the Department of History.

Metcalfe received her Ph.D. in Modern European History from Boston University, where she has been teaching seminars on Agricultural History, Modern European History and Early American History since 2010. Her article "Nineteenth Century American Livestock Improvers and the Market,” (Oct. 2007) appears in the Journal of the History Society. She joins the IHS this year as a visiting research associate and is currently at work developing her dissertation, "Cattle, Commerce, and the City," into a book manuscript.
