Animals in Literature and Film, MMLA 2016

MMLA

This year's MMLA Animals in Literature and Film panel invites papers engaging in tensions of "human" and "animal" found within a variety of cultural textualities in the broad field of animal studies. Since "animality" has often historically been equated with "primitive," in a derogatory sense, and "human" with the rise of civilization and modernity, or the westernization of the world and globalization, this panel seeks papers that disrupt these categorizations through the examination of a wide range of perspectives on animals in diverse texts. To that end, we seek papers analyzing all types of "texts," broadly understood, from mythological sources and artistic representations to music, film, and literature.
