Impressions from the International Conference "Animals and Words" (Darmstadt, May 26-27, 2014)

Abstract : Animaliter is an international research network, which acronym means ‘Animal in literature’. Animaliter organizes regularly scientific conferences. The 2014 meeting took place in Germany in Darmstadt (Technische Universität) on May 26-27, 2014. The topics of the conference, entitled “Animals and Words”, included “Talking about animals” (naming, classifying, describing, qualifying), “Talking with animals” (disputations, dialogues) and “Talking Animals” (typology of voices and signification).This paper is a comment on several topics studied during this conference : Digital Humanities, cultural exchanges between the Orient and the Occident, Christian moralizations on animals. My major comments discuss a critical view on the relationship between words and real things, i.e. between Literature studies adn the zoological contect, material culture and everyday life.
