In Que font les rennes après Noël ? Olivia Rosenthal splices an intimate autobiographical narrative together with various, at first seemingly unrelated, texts about animals. This essay explores ways in which her formal experiment unsettles conventional (anthropocentric and patriarchal) discourses and practices that have traditionally shaped the border between humans and animals. It considers some of the ethical and aesthetic implications of this commitment to writing.
