Title: Gender and Sexuality in Critical Animal Studies
Editor: Amber E. George
Submission deadline for abstracts: May 15, 2019
Excerpt from the description: »A growing number of scholars, activists, and concerned citizens have come forth to advocate for those who struggle to secure equity, inclusion, and justice. This book contributes to this struggle by highlighting the interests of nonhuman animals related to gender and sexuality issues. Critical analysis such as this has the potential of operating as a powerful force for countering the stigmas that continue to oppress nonhumans. Thus my aim in creating this book is to demonstrate that critical commentary can create content that is inclusive and empowering for nonhumans. (...) An in-depth analysis of this caliber is critical to exposing the intersectional nature of speciesism with regard to sexism, homophobia, heterosexism, and other pertinent issues related to sexuality and gender. Using interdisciplinary approaches to enhance social justice, this text is sure to reach a large audience. Now, more than ever, there is a need for more inclusive approaches that avoid reinforcing nonhuman animal inequity.«
