We share our planet with all manner of species. In this seminar, we draw our attention towards the relations we have with other animals. We own, share, experiment with, harness the energy of, visit, display, wear and eat animals. That is to say, we encounter animals in many different ways: As pets, as pests, as food, and as spectacle, for instance.
This seminar will involve reading a selection of texts that examine our relations with nonhuman animals in different ways (a reader will be provided via Stud.IP). Pending final format and considerations of things (*gestures at world*), we will attempt an excursion (probably to the Rostock Zoo).
