Abstract
Educational institutions have traditionally privileged human perspectives and interests, while using animals as scientific objects or ‘resources’ for our teaching and learning, rather than as subjects in their own right. This lecture explores how human-animal relations take shape in a range of educational settings and discusses possibilities and visions for transforming education in a critical posthumanist direction.
