On this episode of Knowing Animals, we speak to Dr Vasile Stanescu. Vasile is an associate professor of Communication Studies at Mercer University in the United States. Lots of listeners will know him for his work in critical animal studies: he co-edits the Critical Animal Studies book series published by Brill, he’s a former co-editor of the Journal for Critical Animal Studies, and a co-founder of the North American Association for Critical Animal Studies. Today, we’re going to talk about his paper “‘White Power Milk’: Milk, Dietary Racism, and the ‘Alt-Right’”, which was published in 2018 in Animal Studies Journal.

This episode is brought to you by the Australasian Animal Studies Association and the Animal Publics book series with Sydney University Press.

Dr Blake Hereth is a philosopher who is, at the time of recording, Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Arkansas. They will soon be taking up a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, where they will be contributing to a project entitled "Warfighter Participation in the Development and Testing of Artificial Intelligence". In addition to work on the ethics of war and peace, which is what we discuss on this episode, Blake has published on a range of topics in philosophy and theology, including work on the ethics of procreation, the ethics of eating, and the afterlife for animals and queer people.

In this episode, we talk about Blake’s paper “Animal Rights Pacifism”, which was published “online first” in the journal Philosophical Studies earlier this year.
