anat why look final cropThe Animals Reading Group invites you to discuss Anat Pick’s article ‘Why Not Look at Animals?’ The group meets at 5pm on Tuesday 15th September in Jessop West Seminar Room 2.

Pick’s article interrogates the ethics of looking at animals in image theory and natural history documentary.

The article is posted online here: http://www.necsus-ejms.org/why-not-look-at-animals/

You can also find an interview with Pick where she discusses the politics of animal images as part of the Knowing Animals podcast series: http://knowinganimals.libsyn.com/

Attendees are strongly encouraged to view the (fantastic) interactive short documentary Bear 71, which forms the focus of the article. Bear 71 can be found here: http://bear71.nfb.ca/bear71/
