The animal is something of a hot topic right now: MLA 2006 will
boast no less than three panels
devoted in some way to it. So much of what is being said and done on
the topic, however, is
framed by the question: what is the animal for the human. That is,
this work directly follows
the paradigm set down by Giorgio Agamben in his book L'aperto:
L'uomo e l'animale (2002),
taking the animal to constitute the human. This panel asks: Is there
another way to understand
the animal? And can we find that way (or indeed, ways) in the
eighteenth century?

Please send Abstracts for proposed papers, along with a brief CV, to:
