This unit interrogates the construction of the "human" in cultural texts through an examination of its constitutive relationship with the nonhuman. Through a selection of contemporary literary and visual texts, students will be invited to engage with a range of critical frameworks such as animal studies, critical plant studies, theories of race and critical whiteness, queer theory, disability studies, posthumanism and the environmental humanities.
