Download or read book Animalia written by Antoinette Burton and published by Duke University Press. This book was released on 2020-10-09 with total page 108 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From yaks and vultures to whales and platypuses, animals have played central roles in the history of British imperial control. The contributors to Animalia analyze twenty-six animals—domestic, feral, predatory, and mythical—whose relationship to imperial authorities and settler colonists reveals how the presumed racial supremacy of Europeans underwrote the history of Western imperialism. Victorian imperial authorities, adventurers, and colonists used animals as companions, military transportation, agricultural laborers, food sources, and status symbols. They also overhunted and destroyed ecosystems, laying the groundwork for what has come to be known as climate change. At the same time, animals such as lions, tigers, and mosquitoes interfered in the empire's racial, gendered, and political aspirations by challenging the imperial project’s sense of inevitability. Unconventional and innovative in form and approach, Animalia invites new ways to consider the consequences of imperial power by demonstrating how the politics of empire—in its racial, gendered, and sexualized forms—played out in multispecies relations across jurisdictions under British imperial control.

Download or read book Animalia Americana written by Colleen Glenney Boggs and published by Columbia University Press. This book was released on 2013-01-08 with total page 322 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Consulting a diverse archive of literary texts, Colleen Glenney Boggs places animal representation at the center of the making of the liberal American subject. From the bestiality trials of the seventeenth-century Plymouth Plantation to the emergence of sentimental pet culture in the nineteenth, Boggs traces a history of human-animal sexuality in America, one shaped by sexualized animal bodies and affective pet relations. Boggs concentrates on the formative and disruptive presence of animals in the writings of Frederick Douglass, Edgar Allan Poe, and Emily Dickinson. Engaging with the critical theories of Michel Foucault, Giorgio Agamben, Judith Butler, Donna Haraway and others, she argues that animals are critical to the ways in which Americans enact their humanity and regulate subjects in the biopolitical state. Biopower, or a politics that extends its reach to life, thrives on the strategic ambivalence between who is considered human and what is judged as animal. It generates a space of indeterminacy where animal representations intervene to define and challenge the parameters of subjectivity. The renegotiation of the species line produces a tension that is never fully regulated. Therefore, as both figures of radical alterity and the embodiment of biopolitics, animals are simultaneously exceptional and exemplary to the biopolitical state. An original contribution to animal studies, American studies, critical race theory, and posthumanist inquiry, Boggs thrillingly reinterprets a long and highly contentious human-animal history.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Swedish naturalist Carolus Linnaeus (1707-1778) believed that it was his mission in life to catalogue everything on the planet: animals, plants, minerals - even a few mythological creatures. Janis Freegard, contrariwise, is a poet trained in botany who has arranged the poems in her witty and engaging first collection by Linnaeus' six animal classes. Featuring a stuffed kuri, murderous magpies and cake-shop cockroaches, Freegard's work reflects the diversity of the animal kingdom and a commitment to conservation - while chronicling the adventures of her hero Linnaeus with a critical but admiring eye.
