New edition: Neither Man Nor Beast

Fabulous news – my work slink (as installed for SPOM: Sexual Politics of Meat Exhibition, The Animal Museum, LA 2017) is one of the works Carol J Adams is including in the new Bloomsbury Revelations Edition of ‘Neither Man Nor Beast: Feminism and the Defense of Animals’ 1994.  Due out in April 2018, this work in which Adams considers abortion rights and animals rights, antiracism work and speciesism, theological issues, animal experimentation, sexual violence and injury to animals, and other issues at the intersection of feminism and animal defense, will feature artworks by myself, Sunaura Taylor, Nava Atlas, Yvette Watt, Susan Kae Grant and Kyle Tafoya.  So honoured to be in this book, and in such great company.
