05/12/2007 18:59:00 The Animals & Society final exam takes place Saturday, December 15, at 7:30 a.m. in ATLAS 100. How should I study for this exam? The best way to begin to study is to spend some time with your notes and the text. The PowerPoint slides may also be helpful to you, and they are available on the course website. Review the readings with an eye to what was covered in class but also what was in the reading but omitted in the lecture. The lecture cannot cover every detail, so sometimes you will have to examine the reading to see what was left up to you to understand. In some cases, you may have to do additional research (perhaps online) to learn more about a term that appeared in the lecture or readings. Once you have reviewed in this way, the next step is to sit down with a classmate and compare notes. Talking about the material with someone else helps you clarify it for yourself. Then, if you still find something unclear, email or arrange to see Liz or Dr. Irvine. How long will the exam be? What format will it take? The exam will have the same format as the midterm. It will have approximately 50 questions and the grade will be based on 100 points. You will receive partial credit for partially correct answers. The majority of the questions will be multiple choice or True/False, much like the clicker questions used in class. Additional questions will have you fill in the blank using terms provided in a word bank. You will have until 10:00 a.m. to finish. If you have provided disability documentation about needing extra time for tests and you find that you cannot finish during the 2-½ hours allotted, you will be able to finish after 10:00 in another location. Study Guide (subject to revision until 6 p.m. 12/13) Readings Animals as Spectacle and Sport 21. Pliny the Elder “Combats of Elephants” Observations were on elephants in ancient Rome.

Said animals were human like in their struggle against getting slaughtered. 22. Garry Marvin “On Being Human in the Bullfight” Bullfighting is a spectator sport that represents the opposition between nature and culture (masculinity). 23. Rhonda Evans, DeAnn Kalich (Gauthier) and Craig J. Forsyth “Dogfighting: Symbolic Expression and Validation of Masculinity” Believe that dog fighting in the south is an activity that reflects and validates masculinity and honor of the white man who participates in the sport. 24. Randy Malamud “Zoo Spectatorship” Says the reason we bring together captive animals as spectacles for humans to see (circus, zoos, ect) helps shape the cultural representation of animals. Doesn’t agree with zoos, and says it doesn’t appreciate nature. 25. Matt Cartmill “Hunting and Humanity in Western Thought”
