In the Company of Animals

4th Social Research Conference April 6-8, 1995


Animals have been hunted and domesticated, befriended and eaten, worshiped and feared, romanticized and demonized, studied and mythologized. Reflections on our relationships with animals have been continuous in human history and are expressed in tradition, art, literature, religion, and science. How have our relationships with animals evolved over time and place, and how do they reflect different understandings of what it means to be human? The delineation of human-animal relationships occurs in all cultures, and in all cultures, this boundary is a matter of great significance.


This conference is funded by grants from Caroline Williams, The Howard Gilman FoundationThe Esther A. & and Joseph Klingenstein Fund, Inc. and National Endowment for the Humanities
