The visual consumption of animals: challenging persistent binaries

    Project Details

    Description

    This three-year project aims to support transformational change in the way humans conceive and interact with nature. Focusing on zoos, racecourses (horses and greyhounds), and agricultural or county shows as sites where such visual consumption is routinized, the project will use qualitative research methods to:
    1. Examine the mechanisms by which the constitution of othered ‘natures’ as resources for visual consumption is normalised and made mundane, and
    2. Challenge human-nature binaries in ways that are still largely non-existent in non-/post-/more-than-human conceptions and evaluations of associated relations.
