A HISTORY OF ANIMALS


This course examines the animal/human relationship through history, including animals as resource and entertainment, ethical frameworks concerning animal treatment, animals in culture, and the rise of pets. Our relationship with animals is complex – sometimes symbiotic, often exploitative – and history helps us to understand why we treat animals as we do.
