The Animal in Ottoman Egypt

Alan Mikhail

  • Examines the multiple changing relationships between humans and animals in a place that affords perhaps the longest documentary record of the human-animal relationship.
  • Ottoman Egypt cannot be understood without acknowledging animals as central shapers of the early modern world.
  • Analysis of what animals did as opposed to what they represented or symbolized.
