SFU Urban Studies Speaker Series | Animals and the City
October 4, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Room 4800, SFU Vancouver (Segal Building), 500 Granville St.
Speaker: Alexandru Balescu (and respondents)
Why is that so many people are much more likely to accept a radical other in a form of a pet, while
rejecting or marginalizing a fellow human being only because she/he may look or act/perform slightly different? What is the parallel between the discourses on stray dogs, matters out of place, and social categories that are deemed marginal or undesirable? Why to many among us, are stray dogs not acceptable while homelessness is?
