Policing the Campus

Academic Repression, Surveillance, and the Occupy Movement

Anthony J. Nocella II and David Gabbard

With the rise of the corporate university and the academic industrial complex, colleges and universities throughout the United States are becoming monitored, armed, gated, and contracted out in the name of security. Policing the Campus is a collection of essays by activist academics and campus organizers from a variety of fields and movements. The book fully explores how higher education has entered a state of academic repression. In this new Occupy Wall Street era, higher education mirrors the problems that plague urban schools in poor communities, including metal detectors, random locker searches, drug-sniffing police dogs, in-class arrests, and security guards at every major entrance. Policing the Campus is a wake-up call to protect higher education as a bastion of free thought, strategy, and challenge for the 99%, and not preserve it as the privilege of the elite 1%.

Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism

Voices from the Eco-ability Movement

Series:

Edited by Anthony J. Nocella, Amber E. George and John Lupinacci

Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism: Voices from the Eco-ability Movement is an edited collection of essays from the leaders in the field of eco-ability. Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism is rooted in critical pedagogy, inclusive education, and environmental education, and the efforts of diverse disability activists working to weave together the complex diversity and vastly overlooked interconnections among nature, ability, and animals. Eco-ability challenges social constructions, binaries, domination, and normalcy. Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism challenges the concept of disability, animal, and nature in relation to human and man. Eco-ability stresses the interdependent relationship among everything and how the effect of one action such as the extinction of a species in Africa can affect the ecosystem in Northern California. Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism is timely and offers important critical insight from within the growing movement and the current academic climate for such scholarship. Animals, Disability, and the End of Capitalism shares insights and examples of radical experiences, pedagogical projects, and perspectives shaped by Critical Animal Studies, Critical Environmental Studies, and Critical Disability Studies. Contributing authors include Sarah R. Adams, Marissa Anderson, Judy K.C. Bentley, Mary Fantaske, Ava HaberkornHalm, Hannah Monroe, Nicole Pallotta, Daniel Salomon, and Meneka Thirukkumaran.

Defining Critical Animal Studies

An Intersectional Social Justice Approach for Liberation

Series:

Edited by Anthony J. Nocella, John Sorenson, Kim Socha and Atsuko Matsuoka

This is the first book to define the philosophical and practical parameters of critical animal studies (CAS). Rooted in anarchist perspectives that oppose all systems of domination and authoritarianism, CAS both challenges anthropocentrism and presents animal liberation as a social justice movement that intersects with other movements for positive change. Written by a collection of internationally respected scholar-activists, each chapter expands upon the theory and practice underlying the total liberation approach, the roles of academics and activists, and the ten principles of CAS. With apolitical animal studies and exploitative animal research dominating higher education, this book offers a timely counter-narrative that demands the liberation of all oppressed beings and the environment. Defining Critical Animal Studies will interest educators, students, activists, community members, and policy makers seeking accessible theory that can be put into action.

Earth, Animal, and Disability Liberation

The Rise of the Eco-Ability Movement

Anthony J. Nocella II, Judy Bentley and Janet M. Duncan

This provocative and groundbreaking book is the first of its kind to propose the concept of Eco-ability: the intersectionality of the ecological world, persons with disabilities, and nonhuman animals. Rooted in disability studies and rights, environmentalism, and animal advocacy, this book calls for a social justice theory and movement that dismantles constructed «normalcy», ableism, speciesism, and ecological destruction while promoting mutual interdependence, collaboration, respect for difference, and inclusivity of our world. Eco-ability provides a positive, liberating, and empowering philosophy for educators and activists alike.

Education for Total Liberation

Critical Animal Pedagogy and Teaching Against Speciesism

Series:

Edited by Anthony J. Nocella, Carolyn Drew, Amber E. George, Sinem Ketenci, John Lupinacci, Ian Purdy and Joe Leeson-Schatz

Education for Total Liberation: Critical Animal Pedagogy and Teaching Against Specisim is an edited collection of essays from the leaders in the field of critical animal pedagogy (CAP). CAP emerges from activist educators teaching critical animal studies and is rooted in critical theory as well as the animal advocacy movement. Critical Animal Studies (CAS) argues for an interdisciplinary approach to understanding our relationships with nonhuman animals. CAS challenges two specific fields of theory: (1) animal studies, rooted in vivisection and testing on animals in the hard sciences and (2) human-animal studies, which reinforces a socially constructed binary between humans and animals and adopts abstract theoretical approaches. In contrast, CAS takes a progressive and committed approach to scholarship and sees the exploitation of nonhuman animals as interrelated with oppression of humans based on class, gender, racism. CAS promotes the liberation of all animals and challenges all systems of domination. Education for Total Liberation is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate level readers (and beyond) who wish to learn from examples of radical pedagogical projects shaped by CAS and Critical Pedagogy. Contributing to this collection are Anne Bell, Anita de Melo, Carolyn Drew, Amber E. George, Karin Gunnarsson Dinker, John Lupinacci, Anthony J. Nocella II, Sean Parson, Helena Pederson, Ian Purdy, Constance Russell, JL Schatz, William E. Shanahan III, Meneka Thirukkumaran, and Richard J, White.
