Farmyard choreographies in early modern England

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This essay uses John Law and Donna Haraway's use of the concept 'choreography' as a way of thinking about human relationships with livestock animals on early modern farms and smallholdings. Using wills as evidence for engagements between people and their cattle, the essay challenges, historicises and takes up the concept of 'choreography' and in doing so tracks what are otherwise often tacit aspects of life in the early seventeenth century.
