Resonant links between medieval ideas of nature, medicine, and apocalypse can be read via Donna Haraway’s ecocritical philosophy and the climate emergency. This chapter takes Donna Haraway’s ideas of ‘Making Kin’ and ‘Natureculture’ to explore both animality and medieval animal studies, via a gendered and locational lens, from Late Antiquity to the Early Modern, using the oyster (Mermecolion) and her pearl (Margarita) as a case study.
