This exhibit grew out of a synthesis of faculty development opportunities I am fortunate to have
experienced through CNR over the years, as well ongoing
research related to my personal concerns for the plight of
animals in our world today.
Some of the research opportunities that have contributed
and inspired this online exhibit are:
The Ecofeminism Project
The 2012 Summer Symposium on
Religion and Environmental Stewardship at Yale Divinity
School. My attendance was made possible by a donation
from Nancy Sullivan Murray, sponsor of the Ecofeminism
My recent volunteer service opportunity at the
Animal Sanctuary which provides shelter and a chance for
a new life to rescued factory farm animals.
Here I received first hand knowledge of the tragedy that
has become our meat production industry.
Re-igniting a long-time passion and interest in animal
rights and advocacy, I offer the following resources in
celebration of the beautiful and complex lives of animals,
our neighbors, companions, and family members.
Hopefully, these materials will also illuminate some of
the serious concerns about the plight and suffering of
animals in our world today and provide the inspiration and
tools to encourage further investigation and action.
