Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Work exploring inter-species relating has offered a critique of the anthropocentrism evident within much social sciences research and also suggested that the coming together of the human and animal-Other may offer up potential for an opening-up of human existence. In this paper we explore this theoretical move and push it to the limits by examining the relationship between the human and a very particular animal-Other, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).
