Abstract

This essay has been reprinted in the five-volume anthology, Animals and Society: Critical Concepts in the Social Sciences, ed., Rhoda Wilkie and David Inglis (London: Routledge, 2006), volume 1, pp.. ISBN 0415371848 This essay steps back from the work on early modern culture and considers the ethical and epistemological implications of writing the history of animals. It takes ideas from other fields of historical inquiry – environmental history, women's history, history from below – and thinks about whether it is possible to write a history of animals. The consideration of ethics and representation in this essay has become a core concern in Animal Studies
