Mapping Canada’s Moral Landscape: An Interview about Animals with Professor John Sorenson

This week we talk with Professor John Sorenson from the Department of Sociology at Brock University.

Sorenson teaches courses in Critical Animal Studies, globalization, and anti-racism. He received his HBA and MA from the University of Alberta and his PhD from York University in Social and Political Thought. He is currently working on a SSHRC-funded project on various ways of representing animals.

We talk with him about his most recent books, Ape and About Canada – Animal Rights as well as how he sees animal rights as a logical extension of anti-oppressive, social justice work more generally.

  1. would have been interesting but I killed it 1 1/2 minutes into the book plugs and announcements. These posts are much more effective if they open with the interview and not the PSAs.
