In what ways can we conceptualise cosmopolitanisms which are not solely human? What does it take to embrace other animals as fellow creatures; where and how are such relationships made possible? With a preface by Donna Haraway, Cosmopolitan Animals is the first edited collection to place the question of animals at the centre of cosmopolitical inquiry. Drawing upon recent scholarship on cosmopolitanism and animal studies, the volume asks what new possibilities and permutations of cosmopolitanism can emerge by taking seriously our sharing, co-existing and 'becoming-with' animals. Edited by a team of six, and featuring chapters by leading scholars from a wide range of disciplines, this collective effort examines knots of human-animal relationships from different angles. It is argued that animals are important players in cosmopolitics, and that worldliness is far from being a human monopoly.(2005) Animals in Person: Cultural Perspectives on Human-Animal Intimacies. ...
