In academe, the general community and cyberspace, people are talking about the role and place of animals in society. Sadly, battle lines have been drawn, making it a struggle to engage in a civil discussion about this complex topic without taking sides. A keen observer of human nature and long-time research advocate, our speaker will describe her personal war on words that obfuscate one of the defining issues of our time.
