Carol Adams’ ‘The Sexual Politics of Meat’ Lecture and Slideshow

Ecofeminist writer and activist Carol J. Adams will present an analysis of the way popular culture representations of meat draw upon dominant Western philosophical viewpoints regarding race, gender, and species and contribute to the interconnected oppressions of women and animals. Adams has written extensively on the links between the oppression of women and that of animals, domestic violence, sexual assault, and the ethics of diets. Her book The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory has drawn international recognition for its examination of meat culture. A book signing will follow the presentation (cash or check only).
