FUR. A Study of the Furry Community

by Carmen Dobre-Hametner

Furries or Furs are an international elective community based on the idea of a connection with one or several preferred animals. In principle this is manifested through the creation of an anthropomorphic animal character (fursona) which can be fashioned as an animal costume, drawn on paper or simply imagined. The fursona can be an object of identification or can just indicate that the respective individual is looking for a new social venue. This project documents the visible practices of animal anthropomorphism but also develops a sociological study that focuses on: 1) comparing the furry community against the main community types; 2) breaking it down on main types of identification.
