Description

From mascots and symbols to pests and pets, the relationship between humans and other non-human animals is complex to say the least. This interdisciplinary course draws upon history, sociology, geography, philosophy, gender studies, and ecology and encourages students to think deeply and critically about human-animal relationships and the spaces that they co-inhabit and co-create together, sometimes synergistically yet oftentimes not. Students will explore and interrogate past and present multispecies entanglements, ranging from megafauna extinctions and rewilding schemes to teddy bear histories, penguin “family values”, and the cultural and material landscapes of catfishing. The primary goal of this course is to begin to develop creative yet pragmatic approaches for what Donna Haraway describes as learning to live and die well together on a damaged Earth.
