Animal Labor

A New Perspective on Human-Animal Relations

Do animals work? Is it possible to work with animals without exploiting them? Might animals even be empowered through work? This provocative collection offers original answers to these questions and allows readers to think about human relationships with domestic animals beyond the well-trodden tropes of domination or animal welfare. To study animal work means to look at animals in new ways and to discover in them unsuspected skills and knowledge that open up new ethical and political horizons.

»›Animal Labor‹ provides a more sophisticated defense of employment of animals than anything I have found in the Anglo-American world.«
Boria Sax, Humanimalia, Herbst 2020
»At a time when more-than-human ontologies are on many disciplines agendas, »Animal Labor« is a thought-provoking volume that forges a path for a reconceptualization of human-animal interrelations and demonstrates that analyzing working animals is also one way to learn about ourselves as humans.«
Hélène B. Ducros, www.europenowjournal.org, 28.02.2020
»In the individual case studies [...] interesting and partly new perspectives on the human-animal relationship in the working context, but also on work in general, are developed and discussed.«
Ulrike Schwerdtner, http://tierbefreiungsarchiv.de, 3 (2020), translated from German
