Founded in 2004 as a network and established in 2009 as a society, YKES has since organized six national annual meetings, gained critical mass and a notable standing nationally and internationally. The theme for the upcoming conference is (Un)common worlds: Contesting the limits of human-animal communities. The conference’s keynote speakers are Professor Erica Fudge, Associate Professor Jamie Lorimer and the zoologist Helena Telkänranta.
I'm teaching a new class on energy in literature and culture and would like to include a short poem or story (or novel excerpt, or perhaps even a short film) on what it's like to work with a draft horse, mule, donkey, etc.--a text that does a good job of representing the play of energies between human and nonhuman being involved in plowing a field, driving a stagecoach, etc. I'm looking for a text that would help underscore the profound difference between animal/muscle energy and fossil energy.
