Animal Studies (listings through 2011)
The last few decades have seen the emergence and rapid growth of a new field of multi- and inter-disciplinary inquiry, called variously “Human-Animal Studies” (HAS), “Animal Studies”, or “Anthrozoology.” Contributions to this field draw upon a wide range of disciplinary formations: sociology, philosophy and history; studies of literature, the visual arts, cinema and popular culture;  biobehavioural biology; science, technology, and medicine studies. What unites HAS work is a determination to find new ways of thinking about animals and about human-animal relationships.  This bibliography is an ongoing project of the Animal Studies Program at Michigan State University.
