How can we make sense of the ambiguous and historically shifting characteristics of human/animal relations? How can these relations be analysed in terms of power and hierarchies intersecting with gender, race, class and nationality? This collection of essays, derived from a Nordic workshop on the matter, contributes to the growing interdisciplinary field of human/animal studies (HAS). The book contains 17 articles, divided into three sections: Thinking with Animals, Animal-Human Culture and Scientific Animals. All the papers included are work in progress – from ongoing or planned projects – in the shape of short contributions. This volume thus constitutes a “smörgåsbord” of lively and vivid research in the area of human/animal relations that goes on throughout the Nordic countries.
