Paper

The latest volume of Yale French Studies addresses French-inspired theoretical and philosophical concerns centered on animals and animality. Contributors from France, the United Kingdom, and North America discuss animal-related topics in the French philosophical and literary tradition, offering a wide range of perspectives on animals, ethics, and the future of animal studies. Essays question the reducibility of animal lives to rights discourse on the one hand and scientific empiricisms on the other, and examine whether and how the advent of the posthuman will affect the standing and the future of the nonhuman animal.

Matthew Senior is professor of French at Oberlin College. Carla Freccero is professor and chair of literature and history of consciousness, and professor of feminist studies, at the University of California, Santa Cruz. David L. Clark is a professor in the department of English and cultural studies, and associate member of health studies in the department of health, aging, and society, at McMaster University.
