Chapter Summary

Kiplings tale presents us with a number of animal encounters, all different in tone. That between the three domesticated creatures is harmonious, a meeting of like minds, albeit one prompted by their disgruntlement with the camel. The fast-growing field of Animal Studies, to which this collection contributes, is a varied domain. Encounters with animals have encouraged collaborations between researchers and writers within the arts, humanities, and social sciences, that have been every bit as wide-ranging as those between Kiplings creatures. The chapters that make up Animal Encounters reflect this variety, both in terms of the disciplines and subject areas from which they are drawn, and the relations that pertain between the fields contributors. The book concerns Potential Encounters. The book addresses Domestic Encounters. It also addresses Libidinal Encounters.

Keywords: Animal Encounters; Domestic Encounters; Libidinal Encounters; Potential Encounters
