Entangled Lives of Children and Animals : Cultural, Environmental and Ethical Issues (Hardcover)
about this item
This book offers detailed accounts of everyday encounters between children and animals, exploring the myriad ways in which their lives are entangled, co-shaped and co-implicated in their common worlds. This groundbreaking book uniquely frames child-animal relations within the context of global ecological challenges, engaging with more-than-human theory to consider the interconnected cultural, environmental and ethical issues we face and bequeath to future generations. The book traces child-animal geo-historical trajectories and convergences in different places, considers child-animal entanglements through an examination of global and nation specific cultural texts, and reflects upon the ethical implications of child-animal entangled pasts, presents and futures. This book also showcases new and innovative research methods, including multispecies ethnographies and applied more-than-human relational geographies and philosophies.
