Abstract / Description of output

This chapter charts key methodological developments in animal geography over the last decade and reviews both conventional and emergent methods in this subdiscipline. Even if research has historically privileged the imaginary and material ordering of animals by humans or used animals as a window to understand human society, there is an increasing drive to focus on the lived experiences of animals themselves. The chapter critically discusses how the field has taken up the use of methodological tools from other disciplines such as ethology and genetic analysis for this. It then evaluates the relative strengths and limitations of conventional social science and cross-disciplinary/emergent methods in studying human-animal relationships at multiple scales to explore how these might contribute separately or together in achieving the field’s more-than-human ambitions.
