AUENG 260 - Literary Animal Studies

3 units (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

Augustana Faculty

A survey of representations of nonhuman animals in texts ranging from sacred literature to scientific writing that explores humanity's evolving relationship with our fellow creatures. Texts will be drawn from a variety of genres and periods, including poetry and prose from antiquity, biblical texts, medieval romance and devotional literature, early modern philosophical and scientific treatises, and more contemporary writing with direct links to the modern animal rights movement. Readings from theorists of animal studies and ecofeminism will guide our exploration of texts and the questions they raise about our connections with nonhuman animals. Prerequisites: AUENG 102.
