Learning in animal rights activism

status: writing

This is a multi-year ethnographic project focused on an animal rights activist network in the San Francisco Bay Area, using participant observation and interviews with activists at various stages of involvement. Emotion is a central concern, as emotion guides our moral and conceptual cognition, shapes our political horizons, and draws us into relationships with others.
