Description

In recent years, scholars in the Humanities have broadened out from a narrow focus on knowledge about "the human" and begun to investigate wider aspects of the nonhuman material world - especially the relationships between human culture, animals, environments and ecologies. These tendencies - variously labeled Ecocriticism, Zoöcriticism, Anthrozoology and Human-Animal Studies - are now generating some of the most vigorous and compelling work by researchers in Humanities disciplines. ENGL411 offers an in-depth examination of key areas of this new interdisciplinary field.
