MS120 HM - Animal Media Studies


Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Mayeri

Description: This course will examine representations of animals in film - wildlife documentaries, animated features, critter cams, scientific data, and video art - to address fundamental questions about human and animal nature and culture. Animal Studies is an interdisciplinary field in which scholars from philosophy, biology, media studies, and literature consider the subjective lives of animals, the representations of animals in media and literature, and the shifting boundary line between human and animal. In readings, screenings, and discussions, we will consider the cultural and material lives of humans and animals through the lenses of science, art, literature, and film.
