Online Course from the Kerulos Center for Nonviolence:
What do we need to learn to support Animal self-determination and liberation? What Nature Needs. Learn how to shape your research with Nature, for Nature, from the eyes and lives of Animals.
Research and education have excluded Nonhuman Nature as agents and authorities of knowledge. Now, science’s recognition of Animal sentience and mass extinctions compel a radical re-framing of the ethics, approach, and purpose of research.
This course expands the scope of the decolonizing movement, exemplified by the field of Indigenous Research Methods (IRM), to include Nonhuman Nature. We explore theoretical, methodological, ethical, and practical dimensions of decolonized research for Animals.
- What does research entail when approached from the perspective of Animal ways of being, ethics, and knowing?
- When we understand Animals as epistemic and moral authorities, what is relevant research by humans?
- What do we need to learn to support Animal self-determination and liberation?
The cost of this course is $550 for students. Go here for more information and registration.
