Animal intimacies : interspecies relatedness in India's Central Himalayas /

de Govindrajan, Radhika (aut.)
Collation: 1 vol. (xiii-220 p.) : ill. ; 24 cm. Collection: Animal lives Édition: Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2018.ISBN: 9780226559841; 022655984X; 9780226559988; 022655998X; .Contenu: What does-it mean to live and die in relation to other animals? Animal Intimacies posits this central question alongside the intimate--and intense--moments of care, kinship, violence, politics, indifference, and desire that occur between human and nonhuman animals. Built on extensive ethnographic fieldwork in the mountain villages of India's Central Himalayas, Radhika Govindrajan's book explores the number of ways that human and animal interact to cultivate relationships as interconnected, related beings. Whether it is through the study of the affect and ethics of ritual animal sacrifice, analysis of the right-wing political project of cow-protection, or examination of villagers' talk about bears who abduct women and have sex with them, Govindrajan illustrates that multispecies relatedness relies on both difference and ineffable affinity between animals. Animal Intimacies breaks substantial new ground in animal studies, and Govindrajan's detailed portrait of the social, political and religious life of the region will be of interest to cultural anthropologists and scholars of South Asia as wellTable des matières / Sommaire: IntroductionThe goat who died for family: sacrificial ethics and kinshipThe cow herself has changed: Hindu nationalism, cow protection, and bovine materialityOutsider monkey, insider monkey: on the politics of exclusion and belongingPig gone wild: colonialism, conservation, and the otherwildThe bear who loved a woman: the intersection of queer desiresEpilogue: kukur aur baghSujet RAMEAU: Relations homme-animal Inde Uttar Khand (Inde) | Animaux Protection Inde Uttar Khand (Inde) | Animaux Inde Uttar Khand (Inde) Aspect religieux | Human-animal relationships India Uttarakhand | Wildlife conservation India Uttarakhand | Animals India Uttarakhand Religious aspectsSujet géographique RAMEAU: India Uttarakhand | Kumaon | UttaranchalType de document: OuvrageLangue du document: anglaisPays d'édition: Etats-Unis d'Amériques
