This course explores the roles of identity and culture in shaping the relationships humans form with other animals. A range of relationships are investigated, including those that figure animals as beings sharing in personhood, as prey, as technologies, as workers, as food, and as family. Inspired by the explosion of new research in multiple disciplines, this course emphasizes cross-cultural and transhistorical variations, while also exploring some of the biosocial features humans share with other animals.
