F 3 credits. As far as we can tell, the first stories people told one another were about animals. Similarly, from Aesop's Fables to Chaucer's rooster Chanticleer to nineteenth-century stories about horses and dogs, the way in which people have used stories about animals has shifted dramatically as our social attitudes and beliefs about animals have changed. The aim of this course is to look at how the way people have thought about animals has changed over time—and also the way that animals have been used to talk about human society has changed.
