  • 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. The Oxford Group is an important but little-known historical development in animal ethics and the animal rights movement. This research project, and the subsequent publication of a book, are the first of their kind to explore the Oxford Group.… Read More

  • All About Love by bell hooks

    April 29, 2018

    I haven’t read bell hooks in many years. I recall her Feminist Theory: From margin to center helped to inform my understanding of feminism in the 1990s. My interest in reading hooks again was after I heard Philip McKibbin speak about “The Politics of Love” at the Minding Animals conference in Mexico in January 2018. He referred to hooks’ All About Love: New visions in his excellent presentation. I confess to a “quick read” of this book and that this is why this is a “quick review.” Nonetheless, I recognize this book to be an informative, provocative, and empowering read. I will certainly return to it for a more thorough reading as my research progresses into understanding the relationship between being an animal lover and a vegan animal rights advocate.… Read More
