    Abstract: In Postcolonial Ecocriticism:Literature,Animals,Environment(2010),authors Graham Huggan and Helen Tiffin reference Marjorie Spiegel's book The Dreaded Comparison:Human and Animal Slavery(1988).They do so in the second half of their book,which focuses on the ideological links between the prejudices of racism and speciesism in postcolonial ecocritical literary contexts.This thesis examines those links in the contexts of a race studies reading of Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn(1885)and an animal studies reading of J.M.Coetzee's Elizabeth Costello(2003).Ralph brings together these two very different novels by way of an issue that is central to the area of inquiry of animal studies as well as to the areas of inquiry of race studies and ethnic studies:performing others' identities and‘the other'performer.In doing so,this thesis comments on an early important foundation text for animal studies,Giorgio Agamben's The Open:Man and Animal(2004),and also discusses Franz Kafka's short story"Ein Bericht für eine Akademie"("A Report to an Academy").
