HOUSECS 59.18

Spring 2021

M, 6 - 7:30PM, online

This course examines animal agriculture through the context of history, ethics, cultural anthropology, psychology, policy, biology, environmental science, social justice, economics, and other integrative disciplines. Students will be introduced to issues in modern animal agriculture in the United States, and some time will be reserved for exploring the consumption of animal products at Duke University and on a global scale. Although the course is guided by mostly vegan philosophy and aims to build a plant-based Duke community, all diets and lifestyles are welcome.
