CAS is an academic field of study dedicated to the abolition of animal and ecological exploitation, oppression, and domination, and it is grounded in a broad, global, emancipatory, and inclusionary movement for total liberation and freedom. As part of our mission, the Academy is vigilant that CAS remains uncorrupted by misapprehension or diminishment of the radical and practicable nature of what this field proposes, which extends well beyond animal rights/liberation scholarship and education.
The CAS Academy provides four education workshops to be held at various locations, depending upon attendee interest:
- Basic Critical Animal Studies Workshop (3 Hours) – randomly offered
- Intermediate Critical Animal Studies Workshop – (8 to10 hour workshop) – once a month
- Advanced Critical Animal Studies Workshop (18 to 20 hour weekend workshop) – six times a year
- Capstone Critical Animal Studies Workshop (40 hour Monday to Friday 9 to 5 workshop) – once a year
NOTE: CAS Academy workshops are in re-development and will not be offered until 2013.
