  • The Oxford Group

    May 17, 2019

    “The Oxford Group and the Emergence of Animal Rights: An Intellectual History” is the name of a research project led by Professor Robert Garner and Research Associate Yewande Okuleye from the University of Leicester. Recently, Robert and Yewande visited my office to record an interview with me and review materials in my animal rights collection for the project.The Oxford Group is the name given to an informal group of young academics who lived in Oxford in the 1970s who became vegetarians and explored animal ethics. The Oxford Group is generally recognized as initiating the philosophical foundation to the contemporary debate about our ethical relationship with other animals.

  • Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokarczuk

    April 22, 2019

    Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead is the arresting if the not jolly title of Olga Tokarczuk’s novel about an old woman. Janina Duszejko lives alone remotely in woods in rural Poland. She used to live with two dogs but they disappeared. She suspects local hunters shot them. This is where the narrative begins and where it ends. I’m not going to say anything about more about the plot as I highly recommend this novel to you.… Read More

  • Nim Chimpsky by Elizabeth Hess
