Disability and Animality
Crip Perspectives in Critical Animal Studies
The fields of Critical Disability Studies and Critical Animal Studies are growing rapidly, but how do the implications of these endeavours intersect? Disability and Animality: Crip Perspectives in Critical Animal Studies explores some of the ways that the oppression of more-than-human animals and disabled humans are interconnected.
Composed of thirteen chapters by an international team of specialists plus a Foreword by Lori Gruen, the book is divided into four themes:
Intersections of Ableism and Speciesism
Thinking Animality and Disability together in Political and Moral Theory
Neurodiversity and Critical Animals Studies
Melancholy, Madness, and Misfits.
This book will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as postdoctoral scholars, interested in Animal Studies, Disability Studies, Mad Studies, philosophy, and literary analysis. It will also appeal to those interested in the relationships between speciesism, ableism, saneism, and racism in animal agriculture, culture, built environments, and ethics.
