Prof. David Nibert Live ARZone Guest Chat

David Nibert is Professor of Sociology at Wittenberg University. He teaches Animals and Society, Global Challenge, Social Stratification, Minority Groups and Law and Society.

David has worked as a tenant organiser, as a community activist, and in the prevention of mistreatment and violence against devalued groups.

He connects animal rights theory with other economic and sociological theories, and believes that speciesism is an ideology that seeks to legitimise animal slavery, defending the discrimination against sentient beings based on their species. David promotes veganism and abolitionism.

David is the author of “Animal Rights/Human Rights: Entanglements of Oppression and Liberation.” (2002) He has published articles in such journals as Child Welfare; the Journal of Interpersonal Violence; RESPONSE: To the Victimization of Women and Children; Critical Sociology; Race, Gender, Class; Society and Animals; and the International Journal of Sociology and Social Policy.

He co-organised the section on “Animals and Society” which was part of the American Sociological Association, and in 2005 he received their "Award for Distinguished Scholarship." His research interests include the historical and contemporary entanglement of the oppression of humans and other animals.

David welcomes the opportunity to engage ARZone members this weekend on a range of topics, including his highly successful book “Animal Rights/Human Rights” and his philosophies in general.

ARZone is supportive of education, critical thinking, rational discourse, and aims to provoke intelligent dialogue about issues that most concern members of the animal advocacy movement.
ARZone does not endorse or promote the views of its guests and forum participants; ARZone does endorse and promote creative education efforts.

This is an event for which questions must be submitted to ARZone prior to Midnight GMT, Wednesday 27 July via email to Carolyn@ARZone.net.
