Human-Animal Relationships in Literature in the Nineteenth Century

This panel explores how literature represents human subjectivity through interspecies relationships, to investigate how we produce ourselves by producing the animal producing us. To examine human-animal relations is to unearth the roots of what we understand today as the human. In the imperial/colonial context of the nineteenth-century, the representation of interspecies relationships (intimate or antagonistic) may establish the human/e as the rightful subject of dominion. At the same time, representations of animals may contest this material-semiotic imperialization. Using the works of authors like Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Joseph Conrad, H. Rider Haggard, among others, we ask questions like: what are the connections between our concept of human empires—and relatedly, human rights—and evolving attitudes towards non-human animals? How does the century’s “civilized,” “humane” subject embody those rights by the management—social, cultural, legal and otherwise—of his relationships to “lower creation”? Approaches using affect theory and/or cultural, legal, or science studies are particularly welcome.
