Reading for 8/6

This week we’re looking at animal liberation, specifically at the ethical ground on which such a moral/ideological practice is based. We’ll start with a short piece by Peter Singer (author of the seminal text Animal Liberation) and read it against a newish Enemy Combatant pamphlet entitled The Harvest of Dead Elephants. If you’re familiar with Singer and the animal rights movement already or finding yourself short on time, focus on the pamphlet, as the Singer text is intended to summarize these ethical claims for those who haven’t encountered them before. Hope to see you there!
