NEW COURSE in HAS at University of Canterbury

NZCHAS and UC proudly announce a new Human-Animal Studies course taught by Associate Professor Nik Taylor, Semester 1 2020! Those who enjoyed “Bambi to Kong: Animals in Popular Culture” and “Reading Animals: Beast Fables to Graphic Novels” will love this course. Critical Animal Studies at its best!

“Humans, Animals and Society” introduces students to the study of human relations with other species and the natural world. It provides students with the opportunity to question taken for granted assumptions about nature, the environment and the roles of animals in society and the human services. The topic adopts a social justice approach and includes consideration of issues such as ecofeminism, animal liberation and speciesism in relation to other forms of oppression. The course provides students with the opportunity to question taken for granted assumptions about power as well as encouraging students to think about the nature, form and process of advocacy on behalf of the marginalized.
