Making Animal Materialities in Time

This paper looks into the intellectual and practical historical processes by which animal bodies have been worked and rendered into new “animal materialities.” By investigating how the nature of animal materialities have specifically changed, why, and how with respect to time and space, this paper clears the ground for a historical understanding of the overall turn toward biological materials in materials science engineering and contribute to the history of science with reoriented animal histories.
