Event Title

Critical Animal Studies: Agency, Theory, and Action

Research Mentor(s)

Nick Stanger

Description

This presentation covers two Critical Animal Studies courses I am currently designing to teach at WWU during the 2019-2020 academic year as part of my graduate field project. The first is a 2-credit introductory seminar titled ENVS 499T “Sem – Critical Animal Studies: Agency, Theory, and Action” to be taught in Fall 2019. The second is a 5-credit course on animals in education to be taught in Winter 2020. Critical Animal Studies explores relationships between human and more-than-human animals on individual, community, and systemic levels. The Fall 2019 seminar introduces new ways to analyze human-animal relations, as well as ways to apply these frameworks within student’s everyday lives. The Winter 2020 course explores the ways in which animals are represented in educational settings, culminating in a final project in which students design lesson plans concerning the lived-realities of animals in the U.S. WWU does not currently offer any courses specifically in the field of Critical Animal Studies and it is my goal to introduce the cross-disciplinary applicability of Critical Animal Studies frameworks and methodologies to Western students.
