My TEDx Talk: ANIMALOGY

Share this:

I’ve been working on this talk for years, and I’m thrilled it’s finally available for public viewing. The live TEDx event was cancelled because of Covid, but it was moved to a virtual event, which is where I presented my talk, called:

ANIMALOGY: Change Your Language. Change the World, and I hope you enjoy it. AND PLEASE SHARE IT!

In it, I introduce the concept of animalogies, the animal-related words and phrases we use on a daily basis, and explore what they say about our perception of and treatment of animals. And I argue that they say A LOT.

So, whether you’re a lover of language or a lover of animals — or history, literature, anthropology, sociology, or all of the above — my hope is that this talk will inspire a conversation about our treatment of and regard for non-human animals. 

For the animals, thank you for watching, and thank you for sharing.
