Animals & Society
Prof. Tracy Basile, [email protected]
Summary: Animals &
Society stretches our everyday concepts of civic engagement, community, and citizenship
to include the nonhuman natural world. A survey of recent articles in a wide range
of fields - human psychology, animal behavior, sociology, environmental history,
politics, philosophy, and health -- reveals that living with animals is serious
business for our own well-being as well as the planet's. Yet, even as we understand
more about the lives of animals and the critical roles they play, our society
seems ambivalent to acknowledge their real value. Why? What are the underlying
causes of this and what can we do about it? Emphasis is on integrating in-class
discussions, lectures, and films with students' experiences in the nonprofit world
of animal welfare and advocacy. Everyone is required to volunteer a minimum of
12 hours of work at a nonprofit organization whose central mission involves the
welfare of animals. In addition, each student will be involved in planning and
running on-campus events related to animal welfare. Whenever possible, we will
observe animals directly, through fieldtrips, the on-campus farm, and volunteer
opportunities. Writing is a key component as this is a Writing Enhanced course,
and you will be expected to write and revise real-life and academic assignments
while keeping a portfolio of your work. View
