Catalogue data

AbstractThis course explores the role of animal lives and bodies in the historical attempts to understand nature and the world. We will review examples such as the laboratory, the natural history museum, and the archeological site. Focusing on Israel/Palestine and the broader Middle East, we will consider animals as tools, objects of learning, and resources in scientific work and technological projects.
ObjectiveBy examining the place of animals in different cosmologies, in the construction of technological systems and environments, as well as their role in defining the contours of human, we will try to answer the question: What is the relation between animals and knowledge?
