Utopian Animals (5/1/10; 2010 Society for Utopian Studies Annual Meeting)

updated:

In H.G. Wells's A Modern Utopia (1905), the narrator holds a remarkable conversation between the narrator and 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."

As evidenced by the March 2009 PMLA's special section and the October 2009 Chronicle of Higher Education's coverage on the emerging field of animal studies, the question of the animal has risen to interdisciplinary prominence as scholars increasingly heed Claude Levi-Strauss' advice to think with the animal.

Any papers relating to Anglo-American literary relations during the last third of the 19th-century, and trickling into the 20th-century, will be most welcome.

I am particularly interested in questions of how transatlantic literature of the period influenced
