Superheroes and critical animal studies


Submitted by syntaxfactory on January 13, 2016 - 7:37pm


We are seeking 300-500 word abstracts by March 15th, 2016 for possible inclusion into an edited collection seeking to explore the world of animal rights and liberation against the backdrop of superheroes in film, television, and comics. While there are many book projects that look at the superhero universe from a variety of perspectives there has yet to be a collection that approaches it from the question of the nonhuman. This project is meant to fill that absence focusing on the construction of the (super)human as it relates to the way our culture understands and values nonhuman animals.
