Description - Animal Spaces, Beastly Places by Chris Philo

In a myriad of ways, animals help make up the societies in which we live. People eat animals, wear products made from them, watch them in zoos or on television, keep them in their houses and in factory farms, hunt them and experiment on them and place them in mythology and stories. Animal Spaces, Beastly Places examines how animals interact and relate with people in different ways. Through a wide and comprehensive range of examples, which include feral cats and wild wolves, to domestic animals and intensively farmed cattle, the contributors explore the complex relations in which humans and non-human animals are mixed together. Our emotions involving animals range from those of love and compassion to untold cruelty, force, violence and power. As humans we have placed different animals into different categories, according to some notion of species, usefulness, domesticity or wildness. As a result of these varying and often contested orderings, animals are assigned to particular places and spaces. Animal Spaces, Beastly Places shows us that there are many exceptions and variations on the spatiality of human-animal spatial orderings, within and across cultures, and over time.
It develops new ways of thinking about human animal interactions and encourages us to find better ways for humans and animals to live together.
