Animal Rights Zone

Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

Hello all,

I am wondering if anyone knows which Australian university has the most vibrant animal rights academic culture.  I have been out of the university system for well over a year now, and as my Masters was in Classics, I didn't really have much to do with other disciplines. 

I am considering undertaking a PhD, probably in philosophy as that was my second major, which tackles something within the animal rights arena.  As I am no longer in contact with anyone within philosophy, I'm a little bit stumped and do not know where to begin looking.

Cheers in advance,

Hi Stevie.  You might contact this group   for some information.

Also some universities have now introduced animal rights subjects in their law courses, ANU and Melbourne but not sure where else.  Voiceless   put on an annual law lecture and might also be able to help.

Good luck and will be interesting for this forum to get an update on what you are doing (-:

Hi Stevie,

You might also have some luck contacting Professor Steve Garlick. He was a recent ARZone chat guest, is an ARZone member and is the Founding President of the Animal Justice Party. He also holds professorial positions at two Australian Universities. 

I would imagine Steve would be happy to offer his advice, he's a very nice man.

If you search in ARZone for his name, and send him a message, that would be the best way to contact him.

Good luck!
