On this episode, we speak to Professor Emerita Carol Gigliotti. Before retirement, Carol was Professor of Dynamic Media and Critical and Cultural Studies at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, Canada. She will be known to many listeners for her work on critical animal studies, animals and technology, and animals in art and design. This includes her 2009 book Leonardo’s Choice: Genetic Technologies and Animals, which was published by Springer. On this episode, however, we talk about her new book, which is called The Creative Lives of Animals. It was published in 2022 by New York University Press as part of their exciting Animals in Context series.
