World History of Animals

Understand, think, anticipate and give tools to grasp the profound changes that are taking place and which organize relations between humans and non-humans

Herein lays the challenge which comes not just from an intellectual wager or a mere university project. It is written in the environmental ecological urgency in which historians, and also philosophers, sociologists, literary scholars, geographers, and other SHS specialists must reinvest the City as it is built, and put forth their common knowledge, then order it to propose to other citizens, as well as experts, but rather as democratic actors of living together, shared amongst all living beings.

From this viewpoint and taking the future into account more than the past, this seminar will host specialists from animal studies in order to understand, think, anticipate and give tools to grasp the profound changes that are taking place and which organize relations between humans and non-humans, between all living beings, mineral, vegetable and animal, to which women and men belong.
