New Critical Animal Studies Blog

Just a quick note to direct interested readers to a new group blog focusing on critical animal studies called The Inhumanities and includes long-time blog friend Craig. Here is the announcement of their first book event:

We are pleased to announce our first event, an intervention in and reading of Matthew Calarco’s Zoographies: The Question of the Animal from Heidegger to Derrida. We plan to cover a chapter a week, and the first post on the book will be up this coming Tuesday, 9-1-09. We encourage everyone to participate in comments, or emails. Calarco has been kind enough to agree to follow the discussion, and post a response at the end of the discussion.

Remember, if you want to email us just drop us a line at

I hope to read along and you should to.

  1. Damn. I just have a bad habit of forgetting to tag posts and “boredom” is the default tag (ie what is always selected). I’ll fix it when I’m back home.

    I ordered the book today. Looking forward to reading along with you guys.

  2. You all make me laugh. Thanks for the shout out. Sorry I couldn’t do beyond monotheism with you guys, though I am super psyched for you all doing Calarco with us!

  3. I actually thought “boredom” was deliberately chosen to reflect the whole problematic in Heidegger on animals (which is central to Schopenhauer too on animals) that animals can’t be bored. Or am I missing a whole big joke about this very thing?
