HON 377 - Critical Animal Studies

Prerequisite, acceptance to the University Honors Program, or consent of instructor and Honors Director. How and when did animals come to be distinguished from humans? What other kinds of relationship to/with animals might we develop? What does the representation of animals in cultural productions suggest about the world views of the producers and consumers of those productions? This course engages with these and other related questions through in-depth study of the interdisciplinary field of Critical Animal Studies. Students engage with key articles, films, and books in Critical Animal Studies, and produce their own creative and critical projects in response. Discussion-based seminar. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
