This course covers various aspects of the dynamic and expanding interdisciplinary field of human-animal studies, sometimes known as critical animal studies, to which students are given a general introduction.

The course thus introduces students to the field with special emphasis on how it is approached from a number of different disciplines, including philosophy, literary studies, art history, history, film studies, and geography. The course highlights how these disciplines work together to study and critically analyse human relations to nonhuman animals.

The course deals with its topic in practice by discussing relevant examples of human representations of, thinking about, uses of, and interaction with nonhuman animals, both historically and today. Students are also introduced to the terminology and different theoretical approaches within human-animal studies, and their application to practical examples.
