Utopian Animals

This panel has already been accepted by the Society for Utopian Studies 35th Annual Meeting, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, October 28-31, 2010. We are seeking a fourth paper.

In H.G. Wells’s A Modern Utopia (1905), the narrator holds a remarkable conversation with a dog-loving botanist who declares that the stated purposes of purging contagious diseases would never, for him, justify the mass extermination of pet dogs. The botanist staunchly concludes, “I do not like your utopia, if there are to be no dogs.” This panel explores the function of non-human animals in twentieth-century imagined communities. How do animals serve to establish—or unravel—a utopia? What do utopian texts teach us about human-animal relationships?
