I am writing a syllabus for a course on "animals and the state in modern European History" and I am looking for recommended readings on animals and women's movements, animals and communism, and animals in the context of mid 19th century nationalism. If anyone has any recommendations on literature that could contribute to seminar discussion on these topics, please let me know.
