GEOG 238 - Animal Geographies


Animals play a prominent role in human life. They sustain us, entertain us and provide companionship and solace. Most of the “animal planet” is comprised of humans and their domestic animals. Only a small percentage of the mass of animals are actually wild. Emerging work in cognitive ethology and ecology is providing new knowledge on animals’ skills and minds. Political movements are fighting for new rights for domesticated animals. How should our relations with other species be determined and assessed? How do these relations differ through cultures and spaces? Where do non-human animals belong?  Open to upper-level undergraduates.
