Feb 21: THE SEXUAL POLITICS OF MEAT



sexual politics of meatThe Sexual Politics of Meat

a lecture by Carol J. Adams

February 21, Tuesday
6 to 8:30 pm

Carol J. Adams, writer & activist

In this multi-media lecture and discussion, author and activist Carol J. Adams discusses the animalizing of women in contemporary cultural images and the sexualizing of animals used for food.  Adams is the author of the pioneering volumes The Sexual Politics of Meat and The Pornography of Meat, and her work has been formative to both ecofeminism and to new directions in critical animal studies.  Her lecture will offer an ecofeminist analysis of the interconnected oppressions of sexism, racism, and speciesism by exploring the way popular culture draws on dominant Western philosophical viewpoints regarding race, gender, and species.  One of her ambitions is to show how Western epistemologies actually further the objectification of multiple Others, human and non-.  In this lecture, she identifies how meat has been a valued masculine-identified protein source and indicates how assumptions about meat eating and its promotion via advertisements, for example, privilege some beings to the violent exclusion of many others.
