Animals and Agency

(MLA panel arranged by the Association for the Study of Literature
and the Environment)

Proposals are invited for presentations that explore literary
representations of animality, especially those that deal with the
agency and subjectivity of animals.

How do representations of animals undermine or complicate the
boundary that supposedly differentiates animals from humans?

How are animals constructed, and how do they undo those constructions?
