CHID Class on Evening Magazine

Submitted by Amy R. Peloff on

Seattle's Evening Magazine produced a nice story on Pigs Peace Sanctuary on August 13, 2014. Katie Gillespie's CHID summer class CHID 250 Animals, Ethics, and Food was featured as part of the story.

In this class students learned 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 explored notions of power and difference, ethics, responsibility, and creativity in reimagining the status quo. This course pushed the boundaries of how we think about difference and discrimination and recognize the intersections between human and animal oppression. 

In addition to thier traditional classroom meeting, each week students travelled to Stanwood, WA to participate in experiential learning at the Pigs Peace Sanctuary.
