WELCOME TO THE HUB HUMAN-ANIMAL STUDIES

The HAS Hub@ICS-ULisboa aims at tackling the relations between human and non-human animals, looked at as a continuum between nature and culture, or naturecultures. Non-human animals are considered actors in full right, active and decisive in the co-production of the hybrid communities inhabited by both humans and non-humans.

FEATURED PROJECTS

CLAN – Children-Animals Friendships: challenging boundaries between humans and non-humans in contemporary societies

Funding by Foundation

(PTDC/SOC 28415/2017)

This project aims at understanding the relationships between children and companion animals, and discusses how these are intertwined with other practices, environments and contexts, such as those involved in taking care of a pet.

FORMATION

International Sumner School ” Companion Animals in (Late) Modernity: The Shared Lives of Humans and Other Animals

This course examines the ambiguous status of companion animals in modern society.
