Carol J. Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat, will give a presentation at Northern Michigan University on Thursday, Oct. 27. Her book explores a relationship between patriarchal values and meat eating by interweaving the insights of feminism, vegetarianism, animal defense and literary theory. The Sexual Politics of Meat inspired and enraged readers and triggered international media coverage when it was first published in 1990.

Adams has visited many colleges to discuss the intersections of gender, species and race in attitudes and representations. Her talk at NMU is scheduled at 6 p.m. in 1320 Jamrich Hall. It is free and open to the public.

The following NMU entities are sponsoring the presentation: Academic Affairs and the Office of the Provost; College of Arts and Sciences; Gender and Sexuality Studies Program; Honors Program; and the departments of English, Philosophy and Earth, Environmental and Geographical Sciences.
