At the juncture of Africa, Europe, and Asia, the Middle East boasts deserts, mountains, steppes, valleys and river deltas. Across the region diverse mammals, reptiles, birds, and insects, as well as marine organisms and invertebrates, make their homes. The workshop “Middle Eastern Animals: Interdisciplinary Perspectives from Early Modern to Contemporary Times” will focus on this diversity and explore the role non-human animals have played throughout the history of the Middle East.
H-Animal aims to serve as an on-line home for scholars across disciplines who are engaged on the study of animals in human culture.
