Some Recent Publications of Note

I hope everyone is having a great summer so far! For your summer reading, here is an admittedly incomplete list of some recent or forthcoming publications that might be of interest to H-Animalistas:

Gala Argent & Jeannette Vaught, eds., The Relational Horse: How Frameworks of Communication, Care, Politics, and Power Reveal and Conceal Equine Selves (Brill, 2022): https://brill.com/view/title/61334?language=en

CFP: Animal Modernities

Call for participation in a one-day conference at Dartmouth College on October 13, 2022 and a follow-up workshop to prepare the papers for publication in an edited volume at Colby College, April 14-15, 2023. Contributions should interrogate and theorize the historical coexistence of animal life alongside humans in the processes and practices of visual production circa 1750-1900 and challenge the traditional subservience of non-human animals in accounts of the emergence of modern visuality.

The Ecological Reparation Youtube Channel

Dear all, 
We would like to share with you the creation of an exciting Youtube Channel that premieres videographic discussions with a range of researchers on the theme of EcologicalReparation: https://www.youtube.com/c/EcologicalReparation/
The videos explore different ways in which ecological thinking and practice may enable reparation, as well as how reparation for damages done could be ecological.

A call is out for paper proposals for the session "Architecture and Interspecies Relations" at the Society of Architectural Historians Virtual Conference, which will take place 20-22 September 2023. Proposals are due 7 June 2022.

CfP: Interspecies Harmony in North American Literature and Culture (European Journal of American Studies)

We are currently accepting abstract proposals for a European Journal of American Studies special issue. Articles for this special issue will be united in their pursuit of answers to the following question: what factors have historically influenced North American literary and cultural representations of harmonious human–animal coexistence?
