Animal Voices / Animal Worlds

The discipline of animal studies has, ironically, produced works focused more on human issues in relation to nonhuman animals than on animals and their concerns. The University of Georgia Press seeks to redress this imbalance by promoting a focus on animals’ points of view in the new Animal Voices / Animal Worlds series. The aim of the new series is to gain an appreciation of how animals perceive, understand, and experience their world, and the series' focus is on works about the animal’s point of view.

Potential topics in the series include
