Overview

This book contributes to the growing field of human-animal studies by examining the human impulse evidenced in blogs, social networking sites, video games, comic books, and animal welfare literature to ventriloquize the animal voice. Gathering scholars from a range of disciplines - anthropology, literature, history, religious studies, and women's studies - and engaging with the work of ethologists, primatologists, and animal behaviourists, the volume explores the ethical, epistemological, sociological, and anthropological implications of the phenomenon, asking not only what it tells us about how we see and know animals, but also what it tells us about how we construct and represent ourselves.
