Picturing Animals

The central premise of Picturing Animals with Dr. Keri Cronin is that the ways in which animals are represented have very real, concrete, and material implications for the ways in which they are treated. The power of visual imagery to shape dominant attitudes about animals or, conversely, to challenge common understandings about them is something that those who advocate on behalf of animals need to think critically about. This column will alternate between images from previous eras and those produced in our current times to underscore this point.
