Jon Hall's dissertation project, tentatively titled "Rabid Republic: Men and Mad Dogs in America, 1780-1920," assesses the impact of dogs on the everyday lives of Americans. In particular, his work traces how the rise of cities created social and ecological conditions that led to increased tensions between human and canine populations.
