Knowing Animals Reading Group - April 29 - The Animal Industrial Complext

The April session focuses on The Animal Industrial Complex. As with the previous session - I have collected accompanying thematic texts.

Last month we discussed the intersectionality of the eco-feminist writing of Josephine Donovan and Lori Gruen, and the 'methodological humility' suggested by Lori Gruen.

The discussions of these reading groups will be posted on the Australasian Animal Studies Association's (AASA) website. Download the summary for the first reading group discussing Cora Diamond's "Eating Meat and Eating People" (1978)
