Carol J. Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat and many other books, will give the first Annual Tom Regan Memorial Lecture at North Carolina State University on Friday, September 21, 2018. This event commemorates the work of CAF co-founder Tom Regan, who was on the philosophy faculty at NC State for over 34 years. The event is jointly sponsored by the Culture & Animals Foundation and by the NC State Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies. Further details will be shared soon.
CAF board member Kim Stallwood organized and spoke on the Tom Regan Memorial Panel, which took place at the Minding Animals Conference (MAC4) in Mexico City in January 2018. The panel covered the life and work of Tom Regan. The panelists included Peter Singer, Lori Gruen, Dale Jamieson, J. Baird Callicott, Mylan Engel Jr., Margo DeMello, and Alejandro Herrera. You can watch it here. (Transcripts of the event will be posted in the next few weeks.)
We’re very excited that multiple CAF grantee and board member Jo-Anne McArthur was voted Wildlife Photographer of the Year, People’s Choice Winner with her photograph of Pikin and Appolinaire. Pikin was going to be sold for bushmeat but was rescued by Ape Action Africa. She was being moved to a larger sanctuary and awoke from being sedated right before Jo-Anne took the photograph. You can learn more about the photo and see the runners-up here. The photograph will be displayed at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London, until the end of May.
The Regan family and the CAF Board appreciate the outpouring of sympathy and support after Dr. Regan’s passing. So many of you have shared your stories with friends, colleagues and on social media as we continue to keep his legacy alive. Our deepest thanks.
