The Animal Studies & Environmental Humanities Research Group investigates questions concerning the human treatment of animals in farming, experimentation, and entertainment; the moral claims that animals make on humans and the extent of animals’ capacity for moral action; animal consciousness and capacity for language; the extinction of species and the degradation of the environment; animals and the law; companion animals; and the representation of animals in literature, film, art, and philosophy.
