In this course we will investigate the often strange and sometimes surprising love/loathe/lunch relationship we have with non-human animals. Why do so many people love their pets but hate insects? Why do some people avoid meat for ethical reasons yet still eat fish? Is it even ethical to own pets that require meat to survive? And what would happen if animals gained awareness? These are just some of the questions we will investigate. Our discussions will be guided by the works of experts in the fields of anthrozoology (e.g. Hal Herzog) and animal science (e.g. Temple Grandin), as well as our own hands-on experiences in the field.
