In this course, we explore how mainstream understandings of animals and human-animal relationships have changed in recent years. Module 1 focuses on the roles of animals in human physical health and psychological well being. Module 2 explores animal selfhood, particularly in light of their inability to use spoken language. Finally, Module 3 examines some of the collective efforts undertaken when the treatment or use of animals comes to be seen as inhumane, immoral, and worthy of ameliorative social action.

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE CHANGING STATUS AND PERCEPTION OF ANIMALS
Very informative course. Enjoyed the journey! The changing perception of animals is explained nicely.
This is a really good introductory course for those wanting to delve into the world of Human-Animal Interactions research and practice.
Was fun and offered a foundation to be used in further studies.
This class sheds a light on research, data and history of a discipline not central enough as it should be. Thank you
