'From A-Z, this book is full of astute companion writers and scholars entangled in rich webs with the lives and deaths of animals, in story, evolution, politics, science fiction, religion, ethics, queer theory, performance, ordinary living, and more. Here is a book that takes seriously the unanswerable but necessary question that gives the Afterword its title, "Who are these animals I am following?" Follow, read, and emerge in the compost that is always more than human.' Donna Haraway, author of When Species Meet (2008) and Staying with the Trouble (2016) Provides cross-disciplinary perspectives on the study of animals in the humanities This volume critically investigates current topics and disciplines that are affected, enriched or put into dispute by the burgeoning scholarship on animal studies. What new questions and modes of research need come into play if we are to seriously acknowledge our entanglements with other animals? Rather than a narrow specialism, the 34 newly commissioned chapters in this book show how we think of other animals to be intrinsic to fields as major as ethics, economies as widespread as capitalism and relations as common as friendship. Fostering cutting-edge research the Companion opens up new methods, alignments and directions as well as challenges for the future of animal studies. Uniquely, the chapters each focus on a single topic, from 'abjection' to 'voice' and from 'affection' to 'technology', thus embedding the animal question as central to contemporary concerns across a wide range of disciplines. The book concludes with an Afterword by Cary Wolfe, author of Before the Law: Humans and Other Animals in a Biopolitical Frame (2012). Lynn Turner is Senior Lecturer in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London. Her research explores how animal and sexual differences matter in visual and aural culture as well as in continental philosophy, literature and psychoanalysis. Undine Sellbach is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Dundee. Her research explores the edges of sentience through ethology, psychoanalysis, feminist philosophy of science and performance Ron Broglio is an Associate Professor at Arizona State University. His research focuses on posthuman phenomenology, exploring how philosophy and aesthetics can help us rethink the relationship between humans and the environment.
