Call for Papers: Yearbook of Women’s History, GENDER IN HUMAN-ANIMAL HISTORY

Jane Goodall’s 1971 seminal study of free-living chimpanzees was called In the Shadow of Man, and for a long time (ironically) that is exactly what studies on animals were. Animals were eclipsed by anthropocentrism – but they were also overshadowed by the other meaning of ‘man’ as the male as normal and the norm, the female as aberrant or invisible. Goodall’s childhood role models – Dr Dolittle, Tarzan and Mowgli – and mentor Louis Leakey inspired her to pursue fieldwork in Tanzania, her identity was a double-edged sword, winning her funding and misogynist scorn of her work.
