Six Theses on Praxis and Critical Animal Studies

By, John Sanbonmatsu, Teaches Philosophy at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute


John Sanbonmatsu will speak on the subject of why the animal liberation movement as presently constituted will fail to achieve its strategic objectives, and what, if anything, scholars working in Critical Animal Studies might do differently to help prevent a total terrestrial apocalypse.


John Sanbonmatsu is editor of “Critical Theory and Animal Liberation” and author of “The Postmodern Prince: Critical Theory, Left Strategy, and the Making of a New Political Subject.” At present, he is at work on a book about the humane meat movement. John teaches philosophy at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts.
