Animal Labour: Ethical, Legal and Political Perspectives on Recognizing Animals’ Work @ The TETT CENTRE, Kingston, ON
Are animals workers? Under what conditions could animal labour become a source of meaning and well-being for animals? What legal, political and social changes would be required to create interspecies workplaces that are just? How can we ensure that talk of animal work is not used to gloss over existing forms of exploitation? Is there a post-work world for animals?
