Vegetarianism and the care tradition in feminist theory, Feb. 14

February 7, 2013 at 8:00 am

While students of feminist theory may be familiar with the liberal, radical, marxist, multicultural, and global schools of feminist theory, other schools of thought are less well known but no less important to feminist intellectual history and to our everyday life as gendered beings in the world. A guest lecture by Dr. Carol J. Adams introduces Upstate to the care tradition in feminist theory, a school of thought that favors an ethics of care over an ethics of justice, and has special pertinence to questions of animal rights and vegetarianism on which Adams has established herself as an expert and persistent cultural worker. This talk is a guest lecture for SWST 301: Feminist Theory and Methods, and is open to the full campus.
