"Although Cultural Studies has directed sustained attacks against sexism and racism, the discipline has lagged behind on questions of the animal, including those that address animal suffering in factory farming, product testing and laboratory experimentation, and in zoos, rodeos, circuses, and public aquariums. the contributors to Animal Subjects are scholars and writers whose work, from diverse perspectives, calls into question the boundaries that divide humans from animals, focusing on the medical, biological, cultural, philosophical, and ethical concerns between non-human animals and ourselves. This collection, the first of its kind to feature the work of Canadian scholars and writers in this emergent field, aims to include the non-human animal question as part of the ethical purview of Cultural Studies and to explore the question in interdisciplinary terms."--Jacket.
