Special Issue of Canadian Slavonic Papers / Revue canadienne des slavistes:

ANIMALS IN EASTERN EUROPE AND RUSSIA

CALL FOR PAPERS

In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in the various ways that animals have shaped human identities and experiences. Canadian Slavonic Papers/Revue canadienne des slavistes invites contributions to a special issue that focuses on human-animal interactions, broadly conceived, in Eastern Europe, the Baltic states, Russia, the Soviet Union, and the former Soviet Union. We invite articles from a range of disciplines that explore the place of animals in the history, culture, and socio-political life of the region during any time period.

Possible subjects include (but are not limited to): animals in war; animal welfare movements; hunting; zoos; pets and pet-keeping; animal celebrities; animal biographies; wildlife and wildlife management; animals and the environment; animals and food production; religion and animals; circus animals; taxidermy; the use of animals in scientific research; animals and disease; animals and animal symbolism in literature and art; animals and the law (including European Union legislation); working animals; and animals under Communism. The issue aims to be multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary.

Manuscripts may be in English or French.  The normal peer-review process will apply.
