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 (HAS) - are now generating some of the most vigorous and compelling work by researchers in Humanities disciplines. CULT418 offers an in-depth examination of key areas of this new interdisciplinary field.
