Animal Studies in the Humanities: Home

Animal Studies

Animal Studies is an emerging field that builds on scholarship in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences to investigate past and present relations between human and non-human animals, the representation of those relations, their ethical implications and their social, political, and ecological effects in and on the world. It is a field of critical importance today as the complex, but fragile interdependence of all life becomes increasingly apparent, and as scholars, artists, and activists seek ways to understand and enhance the lives of all animals.  [From Wesleyan Animal Studies program - http://www.wesleyan.edu/animalstudies/]
