4:00pm - 5:15pm CDT April 15
Join Southwestern University’s Department of Religion for an interactive panel discussion exploring the religious intersection of the treatment of animals and our food choices. Preeminent scholars of animals and religion from around the country will weigh in on how various religious traditions might approach these issues, with an emphasis on how modern developments, such as factory farming, affect our religious relationships with animals. Presentations from each panelist will be followed by a question and answer session. The program is funded by the Department of Religion and the Paideia program.
