“Reading Animality”

This introduction to animal studies theory examines how we define the human by excluding the animal, and how racial, sexual, and other forms of difference overlap with human-animal difference in contemporary literature and culture. Readings include stories, poems, and novels by Arthur Conan Doyle, Edgar Allen Poe, Eden Robinson, and Larissa Lai.

As the Faculty of Arts has determined that all BA courses will be offered online in Fall 2020, the course will proceed through a mix of asynchronous activities (discussions and materials on Canvas) and synchronous (real-time) meetings in our designated time slot.
