(T. Morris) Animals [TR 1100-1220P]

Course Description: Everybody deals with animals at some point in their lives, often constantly – we *are* animals, for one thing. Writing about animals comprises a large part of the world literary and academic traditions, and makes a great way to learn the craft of writing. We will read texts about animals from the fields of literature, history, ethology, and art history. You will write two major papers (one a personal reflection on a real animal, the other an art-history paper on representations of a given animal). There will be several shorter papers and other kinds of writing exercises.

Texts:
My Dog Tulip (Ackerley)
Do Fish Feel Pain? (Braithwaite)
Hare (Carnell)
A Feathered River Across the Sky (Greenberg)
Oyster (Stott);
A Foray into the Worlds of Animals and Humans (von Uexküll)
