A panel featuring Peter Singer, Ph.D., the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, will discuss the way humans think about other animals at Christians and Other Animals: Moving the Conversation Forward, on Friday, Nov. 16 at 4 p.m. in the Lincoln Center campus’ 12th-floor Lounge.
Currently a hot topic in academic theology and philosophy, concern for nonhuman animals is largely unengaged by the broader culture. Singer, one of the most influential philosophers alive today, is credited with being the intellectual heft behind the beginning of the animal rights movement in the 1970s.
Other panelists include David Clough, Ph.D., professor of theological ethics at the University of Chester and a leading voice for the defense of animals in the contemporary Christian conversation; Eric Meyer, a doctoral candidate in theology; and R.R. Reno, Ph.D., professor of theological ethics at Creighton University.
The panel will be moderated by Charles Camosy, Ph.D., assistant professor of Christian ethics.
