'Like an Animal': Critical Animal Studies Approaches to Borders, Displacement, and Othering, coedited by Núria Almiron (with Natalie Khazaal)

17.06.2021

 

We are very pleased to announce the latest book coedited by Núria Almiron (with Natalie Khazaal): Like an Animal: Critical Animal Studies Approaches to Borders, Displacement, and Othering, published by Brill and launched on 17 June 2021. Núria Almiron also contributes with the chapter: "The Ethics of Representing Human and Nonhuman Distant Suffering" and Laura Fernández participates with the research "Visual Representations of Human and Anymal Migrants in Images from the International Daily Press". 

Volume abstract: The contributors of Like an Animal challenge most fundamental concepts in the fields of racism, dehumanization, borders, displacement, and refugees that rest on the assumption of humanism. They show how we can bend the arc of the moral universe toward justice at the border. The goal of this interdisciplinary collection is twofold. First, to invite border/migration studies to consider a broader social justice perspective that includes nonhuman animals. Second, to start a discussion if nonhumans maybe refugees of a kind and how humans can address nonhumans’ interests and needs from the perspective of addressing refugee issues. As capitalism and the climate crisis are taking a catastrophic toll on the planet, this timely volume exposes the alternative origins of violence that lie at the heart of the planet’s destruction.
