Nick is joined by his cousin Emil Raji to discuss the Bali dog meat scandal, where Australian tourists have been eating dogs thinking they were eating a different species of animal.
We give a critical perspective on this scandal and the campaign against it, highlighting the nationalism and racism underlying the outrage behind eating dogs as particularly exceptional or worse than eating other animals.
Nick’s talk Rescuing Dogs in a Mercedes-Benz, Animal Advocacy in China. This talk gives a critical perspective on Western opposition to the dog meat trade.
Colin Salter's talk Normativity, Intersectionality and States of Exception, which argues that animal advocates shouldn't focus on the relatively small number of animals killed in non-Western counties as exceptional.
