In January, Seattle Arts & Lectures is hosting a series on animals. Thinking Animals: Species, Power, and the Politics of Care will explore the histories, politics, and cultural dynamics of how humans see (and sometimes ignore) animals and their needs—as well as how we can protect and advocate for them. This five-part series begins January 9, 2015, and runs through March 6.
Speakers include Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, and Professors John Marzluff, Louisa Mackenzie, María Elena García and Tony Lucero from the University of Washington as well as a not-to-be-missed presentation by Dr. Kathryn Gillespie, part-time lecturer in the Dept. of Geography on her research into the lives of dairy cows. Read the full description of the lectures here and more about this lecture series can be found in this article in City Living Seattle newspaper.
