This year's MMLA Animals in Literature and Film panel invites papers engaging this year's conference theme "Arts and Sciences," and especially the connection between the history of science and animals.

Papers might consider eighteenth- or nineteenth-century natural history writing and/or collection practices; contemporary or historical discourse around animal experimentation; conceptual issues of animacy, animality, and/or "life"; taxidermy; issues of animality or personhood in contemporary science, medicine, literature, or film; issues of extinction and/or species revival; or figures of "monstrous animals" produced by science, from Frankenstein to Godzilla to the dinosaurs reanimated to populate Jurassic Park.

While the Middle Ages are not always though of as a time rich in developments in the arts and sciences, as scholars of medieval literature, we know that this is not the case. Certainly, old and middle English literature can be thought of as an art form itself, and manuscript art and illumination can also be considered as art. Additionally, discussions of arts and sciences within texts themselves (both literary and religious) are plentiful and wildly interesting throughout the Middle Ages.
