Welcome to Animality Studies@CSU!
This website is your gateway to all of the
exciting things happening at Colorado
State University in relation to the cultural study of animals and animality (including humans as animals). Sponsored by the Department of English and based within the College of Liberal Arts, Animality Studies@CSU builds upon interdisciplinary work that has been identified variously as animal studies, human-animal studies, animality studies, and other related terms.
Diverse projects within animality studies explore issues such as: the implications of how animals and animality are represented in literary and cultural texts; the distinctions various people make between humanity and animality; the ethics of relationships between humans and animals, including the impact of environmental problems on animals; the history of how people have thought about animality at different times and places; and the politics of various kinds of animal advocacy.
