The journal Caliban was created in 1964. Entitled Anglophonia/Caliban from 1997 to January 2014 (alternating with the journal of linguistics Anglophonia/Sigma, with one issue a year), it took its original title Caliban again in 2014. There are two issues per year. It is devoted to the literatures and civilisations of English-speaking countries (British Isles, USA, Canada, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, India, Caribbean Islands, etc...). Every issue is thematic and favours recent research in the fields of literature, civilisation and visual arts. It offers young searchers the opportunity to have their research known.

The aim of this volume is to consider animal love in its multiplicity, from a philosophical, environmental, scientific, aesthetic and literary angle at the same time, by inscribing the theme in the wider relationship of humans with the world. Animal love is not some phrase for idealists of sweet dreamers. It is the core of a society of change that shoud give a prominent place to attachements, bonds and connections, to an empathy that is he key to all forms of societal changes. Animal love raises many fundamental questions and opens many paths. Does love make communication between species easier? As that empathy generates a better communication between different species, we can wonder if a better way of listening to the animal world would not help us humans to communicate between one another in a deeper and more effective way.
