I invite anyone interested in animal rights or social activism in general to listen to the 11/2/2010 episode of the Animal Voices podcast. Their guest is Carol Glasser, a PhD candidate in sociology, who is looking at the efficacy of militant activism in the cause of animal rights; she’s interested in how much and what kind of media attention it brings, how many animal lives are actually saved, and other aspects of strong interest to all of us. Her research has implications for other kinds of activism as well, including feminism and racial equality.
I heard it via iTunes, but their website will do streaming, as well.
