Part of Scripps College Humanities Institute Fall 2013 Series: "Re-Visioning Food Sovereignty: U.S. Supply and Consumption"

A. Breeze Harper, Ph.D., Senior Research Analyst at Critical Diversity Solutions and Founder of the Sistah Vegan Project. How do the meanings PETA applies to vegan commodities, and their 'anti-racist' use of Trayvon Martin's 2012 murder, signify how both post-humanism and post-racialism work to conceal the violence of neoliberalism and structural racism? In this lecture, Dr. Harper will present how PETA's online vegan food guide sets the mainstream debate of 'ethical food' consumption, but within the logic of neoliberal whiteness. Bring your lunch or purchase lunch in Malott Commons Dining Hall. Coffee and dessert provided.
