Animal Engagements: Writing and Talking with Nonhuman Animals

This course tangles with some ontologies, ethics, and poetics of human-nonhuman writing and rhetorical situations. We will explore frameworks of interspecies relation developed in environmental humanities, critical animal studies, and other theory. Other readings will range from fairy tales to poetry to political propaganda; we will look at the different ways of knowing and treating animals in these works. All along, we will also be writing with animals, and students will keep journals of animal presences and absences.
