Blattner, C. E., Donaldson, S., & Wilcox, R. (2020). Animal Agency in Community. Politics and Animals, 6, 1-22.
We live in a multispecies society, shared with all different forms of life. From our limited anthropocentric perspectives, we often forget that animals have both an individual and a collective agency, though it is often suppressed and their potential squashed. This paper looks at how animal agency is expressed at VINE (Veganism is the Next Evolution) Sanctuary and explores how it might look to re-fashion our society into a shared, equitable, interdependent space for all species.
