Submitted by Phillip S Thurtle on

Let's celebrate the award for Maria Elena Garcia's class, “Violent Intimacies: Encountering the Animal,” Comparative History of Ideas Program, University of Washington. (Seattle, Wash.) 

The rubric of “violent intimacies” allows this interdisciplinary course to focus on the exploitative side of human-animal relationships from various viewpoints. The result is a rich intellectual and on-the-ground experience reflected in the accolades of faculty and students alike.
