Sport, Animals, and Society Hardback
Edited by James (McMaster University, Canada) Gillett, Michelle (McMaster University, Canada) Gilbert
Part of the Routledge Research in Sport, Culture and Society series
This book advances current literature on the role and place of animals in sport and society.
It explores different forms of sporting spaces, examines how figures of animals have been used to racialize the human athlete, and encourages the reader to think critically about animal ethics, animals in space, time and place, and the human-animal relationship.
The chapters highlight persistent dichotomies in the use of and collaboration with animals for sport, and present strategies for moving forward in the study of interspecies relations.
