Animal Studies considers the cultural implications of the ways we dwell with non-humans. This interdisciplinary group will look at foundational and recent work in this subfield of cultural studies as a starting point for building cross-disciplinary, cross-campus research on animals which would fundamentally include an arts and humanities perspective. Key questions for the group are how animals matter, which animals, and who decides? Additional questions include how animals are managed and represented and what is lost in current configurations?
