In an effort to fundamentally rethink the relationship between human beings and non-human animals, this course will explore some of the legal, ethical, cultural, political, ecological, and social issues that underlie the concerns for and against animal rights and protections. We will examine the use of animals for experimentation, food, entertainment, work, and their furs, as well as its impact on society, its industries and institutions. Different perspective on animal rights and animal welfare will be presented and a comparative analysis of human and animal rights and abuses will be attempted so as be able to trace whether the abuse and exploitation of animals may be inextricably related to the oppression of human groups. We will examine the gender, race, and class implications of the use of animals, in general, and the meat culture, in particular. In addition to lecture, readings, and class conversations, we will watch videos, invite guest lecturers, and visit animal sites in order to gain a better understanding of this subject matter.
