Why Animals Matter
Location: Student Services Center Room W-201
Presentation by Dr. Katherine Young of the Political Science Dept. Every year, billions of animals are killed for human needs across the globe. Many of these animals are killed for food, and often within the context of industrialized agriculture. Why do we eat animals? Why do we use them for human interests at all? How does our treatment of animals link to global issues that radically impact human communities, like climate change and economic inequality? Finding answers to these questions is important for rethinking the global political imaginary, and may demand a new politics beyond individual choice and the values of neoliberal capitalism. Part of the International Topics Speaker Series. Free.
