Relating to Animals: Connecting and Reconnecting

ONLINE VIDEO [CC]  Featuring Dr. Ann Weber, Professor of Psychology - Emerita.  "Relating to Animals" is an illustrated lecture, reviewing the many ways in which non-human and human species interact, with a particular focus on companion animals (pets).  The focus is on relationships between our species and others; several slides depict less humane "uses" of animals, from "cultivation" and consumption to research. Thought not a propaganda piece, "Relating to Animals" is nonetheless unapologetically tilted toward animal welfare:  the many, even simple, strategies individual humans, institutions and policies can employ to be kinder, more intelligent, and more compassionate in our shared world.
