Students explore various aspects and perceptions of the human-animal bond through multidisciplinary approaches over time and across cultures. They will critically evaluate the meanings humans ascribe to companion animals. Through movies, video clips, readings, and discussions, students are exposed to historical and contemporary utilization and exploitation of companion animals they may encounter in their professional lives. Class concentrates on "pet" animals (dogs, cat, and to a much lesser extent the horse.)
