SSEA

The Society for the Study of Ethics and Animals

The Society for the Study of Ethics and Animals (SSEA) was founded by Harlan B. Miller (Virginia Tech) in 1979. As Miller wrote in 1980: "The Society for the Study of Ethics and Animals has been established to provide for the exchange of information and provide arenas for discussion and debate between those interested in ethical questions concerning human treatment of nonhuman animals. The Society will not take sides, and is committed only to open discussion."

The Society has held annual workshops on animal ethics since its founding. In recent years, these workshops have been just prior to the Rocky Mountain Ethics Congress at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Please see the current call for more information.

The Society's officers include C. E. Abbate (University of Nevada, Las Vegas), Bob Fischer (Texas State University), and Jeff Johnson (St. Catherine University).
