Additional Details:

In this class you will learn to better understand the workings of the U.S. food system (at both an industrial and small scale), and the experience of animals within this system. Using animals in the food system as a case study, this course will explore notions of power and difference, ethics, responsibility, and creativity in reimagining the status quo. This course will push the boundaries of how we think about difference and discrimination and recognize the intersections between human and animal oppression.

*Important: In addition to the two scheduled class periods on campus, students will participate in experiential learning at a local animal sanctuary on Thursdays from 10-3pm.
