The semiotics of animal representations cited in Gender Forum editorial

The semiotics of animal representations is cited in an editorial in Gender Forum, issue 55.

Ohrem, Dominik 2015. The Question of the Animal and the Promises of Postanthropocentric Feminisms [p. 3, reference to “Tüür and Tønnessen” (MT 2014b)]. Editorial. Gender Forum issue 55: 1–8.
This refers to:
— 2014. The Semiotics of Animal Representations (Nature, Culture and Literature 10). Co-edited with Kadri Tüür. Amsterdam/New York: Rodopi. ISBN: 978-90-420-3827-1, E-Book ISBN: 978-94-012-1072-0.
The study of animal cultures and societies (see, for example, de Waal and Tyack; Nimmo), the ‘philosophical ethologies’ of scholars like Vinciane Despret and Dominique Lestel (see the recent special issues of Angelaki: Journal of the Theoretical Humanities) or the perspectives of zoo semiotics and zoopoetics (Wheeler; Tüür and Tønnessen; Moe) are only a few examples of such attempts at articulating – or at least approaching – the ‘unheard-of thoughts about animals’ that Calarco refers to.
