Editorial Reviews


Emerging New Voices in Critical Animal Studies will take readers on a crucial emotional journey as they highlight current atrocities happening around the world. The content is very engaging and thought provoking–leaving you respecting how you live your life or with an action list of things you must change. An essential read for all people.” –J. Ellis, Adjunct Faculty, Salt Lake Community College

Emerging New Voices in Critical Animal Studies is a great addition to the ever-growing canon of critical animal studies texts. The authors approach total liberation from multidisciplinary, transnational perspectives ranging from theological inquiry to Turkish governmental policy. It is an important read for anyone interested in global human and nonhuman animal liberation.” –Dr. S. Marek Muller, Assistant Professor, Rhetorical Studies, Florida Atlantic University

“One of the greatest contributions of critical animal studies has been to create a space for activists and activist-scholars to be seen and heard, and taken seriously. Emerging New Voices in Critical Animal Studies is a powerful reflection of–and testament to–this ongoing commitment. This is a collection which enriches our knowledge and understanding with originality and verve.” –Dr. Richard J. White, Reader in Human Geography, Sheffield Hallam University, UK

“Poirier, Bernatchez, and Nocella have put together a brilliant critical text that will expand the fields of intersectionality, social justice, and sociology within the realms of animal ethics, critical animal studies, posthumanism, and animalia.” –Dr. Erik Juergensmeyer, Editor, Green Theory and Praxis Journal

“This book is another masterful critical animal studies compilation of research and essays dedicated to the liberation of all beings. The question of why some of us are free and some of us exist only to serve others has yet to be fully answered and understood. The journey toward that answer and the impending liberation of all, continues with this excellent work.” –Dr. John Alessio, Social Problems and Inequality

“This collection introduces emerging scholar-activists fighting for total liberation globally and proposes a new framework in which activists can use to create a global movement for social justice. In addition it its contribution to the field, Emerging New Voices in Critical Animal Studies offers ways for us to build solidarity with intersecting liberatory movements in order to dismantle all structures of oppression, domination, and hierarchy.” –Z. Zane McNeill, co-editor, Queer and Trans Voices: Achieving Liberation Through Consistent Anti-Oppression

“This powerful and essential new work features some of the emerging and diverse voices of the latest generation of CAS scholar/activists. Their profound insights and visions, grounded in the critical animal studies tradition, are invaluable in the ongoing struggle against all forms of oppression.” –Dr. David Nibert, Professor of Sociology, Wittenberg University
