Ian served from — as head of humanities and art and visual culture at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.
Over the last two decades the humanities and social sciences have been experiencing such an event: This is because the very idea of the human—the way we understand and experience ourselves as humans—is closely tied up with ideas about animals.
What makes animal studies fresh and challenging is that its practitioners consider humans as animals amongst other animals, while refusing to do so from an exclusively or necessarily biological point of view.
Such approaches represent a breakdown of two powerful hegemonies: Wilson and Stephen Jay Gould The creatures that occupy our taxonomies are never purely nonhuman. They are never free of us.
Their bodies, habits and habitats are shaped by human designs; they are contaminated by, but also resistant to, our philosophies, theologies, representations, interests, intentions. For we are not free of the animals either, although the tradition of humanism—whose ruins we inhabit—promised that we should be.
Animality infests us, plagues us, goes feral on us, As Bruno Latour has suggested, if we are to speak of anthropomorphism in our view of animals, must we not also speak of zoomorphism in our perceptions of the human?
So it seems best to introduce this collection by emulating one of the oldest of textual assemblies designed for knowing animals: Rather they multiplied and mutated, especially in the arts and in popular culture.
Now—as the rule of modernity decays—humanities scholars, social scientists, writers and artists have begun to coax these anthropomorphs out of hiding, to reevaluate the mixed-breed byproducts of the modern attempt to separate human society from nonhuman nature.
But animal studies can also bring the insights and methods of science to bear on human artistic and cultural production.Niles Advertising is a certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business with a wealth of experience, and a strong commitment to You Rauk Creations | Oak Creek, WI | Rel: 0 You Rauk Creations provides Screen-printing and Embroidery service for teams, clubs, organizations or for special events.
