1. Which is not an idea of Philo's Animals, geography and the City- notes on inclusions and exclusions?

  • Animals, livestock, meat markets and slaughterhouses in the city
  • Natures otherness- If the zoo is a ‘space’, Adelaide Zoo is a ‘place’ which tells us about its own framing contexts of colonialism and post-colonialism, to which must be added an imperial network of animal trading
  • Particular attention is paid to 19th-century debates about meat markets and slaughterhouses, wherein can be detected a will to exclude livestock animals from cities such as London (medical and hygienic, organisational and moral)
  • Their inclusion - 'human chauvinism' leading them to be ignored altogether or only researched in the context of their utility to human beings and regarded as a marginal 'social’ group of human communities- socio spatial exclusions
