2021 American Philosophical Association Pacific Division Meeting: A Path from Animal Ethics to Animal Law

April 6, 2021 3:00 PM to April 6, 2021 5:00 PM
PT – Pacific Time

Please join Education Program Manager, Priscilla Rader Culp with the Animal Legal Defense Fund as she presents on a path from animal ethics to animal law during the virtual American Philosophical Association Pacific Division Meeting.

APA virtual meetings will include the same types of events as in-person meetings. Each meeting will include a plenary presidential address, colloquium and symposium sessions, invited sessions, affiliated group sessions, prize lectures such as the Dewey Lecture, and social events. These events will be held via Zoom. The meeting dates differ slightly from the dates originally planned for in-person meetings, and the days have been shortened to avoid Zoom fatigue and maximize access across time zones. Unless presenters opt out, meeting sessions will be recorded and the recordings will be available for registrants to view for one year following the meeting.
