This collection brings together a range of inter-disciplinary works which explore the questions raised by scientific practices and by different ways of conceptualizing the place of human beings in the material world. The contributors consider theoretical issues and the debate between those who advocate a post-humanist abandonment of any distinction between society and nature, human and animal, and those who argue for the importance of retaining these categorical distinctions. Through a range of case studies, they explore practices which reproduce and/or challenge the species barrier, including issues of animal rights and animal welfare, whether and under what circumstances animals are regarded as social actors with agency, media representations of human-animal relations, and the relation between animals and national identity. Taken together, these essays examine the social and political ramifications of different ways of theorizing and researching the relation between human and other animals.
