American wildlife biologists first began fitting animals with radio transmitters in the 1950s. By the 1980s the practice had proven so useful to scientists and nonscientists alike that it became global. Wired Wilderness is the first book-length study of the origin, evolution, use, and impact of these now-commonplace tracking technologies.

Murdering Animals: Writings on Theriocide, Homicide and Nonspeciesist Criminology

Murdering Animals: Writings on Theriocide, Homicide and Nonspeciesist Criminology By Piers Beirne
English | EPUB | 2018 | 240 Pages | ISBN : 1137574674 | 2.61 MB

Murdering Animals confronts the speciesism underlying the disparate social censures of homicide and “theriocide” (the killing of animals by humans), and as such, is a plea to take animal rights seriously.
Its substantive topics include the criminal prosecution and execution of justiciable animals in early modern Europe; images of hunters put on trial by their prey in the upside-down world of the Dutch Golden Age; the artist William Hogarth’s patriotic depictions of animals in 18th Century London; and the playwright J.M. Synge’s representation of parricide in fin de siècle Ireland. Combining insights from intellectual history, the history of the fine and performing arts, and what is known about today’s invisibilised sites of animal killing, Murdering Animals inevitably asks: should theriocide be considered murder? With its strong multi- and interdisciplinary approach, this work of collaboration will appeal to scholars of social and species justice in animal studies, criminology, sociology and law.

Semiotics of Animals in Culture: Zoosemiotics 2.0

Semiotics of Animals in Culture: Zoosemiotics 2.0 By Gianfranco Marrone
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 222 Pages | ISBN : 3319729918 | 9.55 MB

To place animals within the realm of nature, means inserting them among the articulations of culture and the social. Semiotics has never avoided this chiasmus, choosing to deal from the outset with the problem of the languages of animals following the old admonition of Montaigne: it is not that animals do not talk, it is us who do not understand them.
