Weekly Roundup – September 13, 2009

with 2 comments

This is the second in a weekly feature wherein we provide information on developments in the growing field of critical animal studies, including job and fellowship announcements, calls for papers, new books and articles of interest and, of course, any interesting activity on other blogs. If we miss anything, please let us know in the comments, or drop us an email at!


Books, Articles and Blogs

  • Bettina Bildhauer reviews Merry Weisner-Hanks’ The Marvelous Hairy Girls, on the Gonzales family of “dog-faced men,” in the Times Literary Supplement
  • William Yardley in the New York Times on the return of the legal wolf hunt and commentary at Animal Blawg by David E. Cassuto on it here, here and here
  • Cathleen Schine reviews Alexandra Horowitz’s Inside of a Dog:What Dogs See, Smell and Know in the New York Times (Horowitz bases her work on von Uexküll, who was a significant influence on Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Deleuze, and Agamben; she seems to support a variation of the claim that dogs do not experience “beings as such“)
