Welcome to Fauna
We are an independent network of scholars in the humanities working in the fields of animal studies, ecocriticism, and the environmental humanities. We organize talks, workshops, and conferences, and we are working on establishing cooperations between early-career scholars and established experts in cultural and literary studies, history, philosophy, anthropology, and other fields.
Fauna is focused on an approach towards animal studies that investigates the intersections between human-animal relations and human social relations and historical becomings, thus highlighting the always more-than-human character of human societies, cultures, and histories. We are always interested in new conceptual tools and interdisciplinary stimuli that help us make sense of these complex intertwinings of human and animal realities.
