    An Interview with Paul Waldau

    An Interview with Paul Waldau

    In this third podcast from A Communion of Subjects: Law, Environment and Religion, we discuss “Animals”—what, or whom, are we talking about when we talk about “animals”? How can we use our personal interactions with nonhuman animals to enlarge our understanding of community, love and empathy. And what are our responsibilities to the “animal”--or, more precisely, the nonhuman animal world?” We are delighted to be joined by Paul Waldau, director of the Anthrozoology Program at Canisius College and the President of the Religion and Animals Institute. Paul is also a prolific writer; his books include “A Communion of Subjects,” and, most recently, “Animal Studies.”
