Bestial traces : race, sexuality, animality

Author: Christopher Peterson
Publisher: New York : Fordham University Press, 2013.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English : 1st edView all editions and formats
In contemporary race and sexuality studies, the topic of animality emerges almost exclusively in order to index the dehumanization that makes discrimination possible. 'Bestial Traces' argues that a more fundamental disavowal of human animality conditions the bestialization of racial and sexual minorities.
