    Animals and World Religions: Rightful Relations.Lisa Kemmerer - 2012 - Oup Usa.
    Despite increasing public attention to animal suffering, little seems to have changed: human beings continue to exploit billions of animals in factory farms, medical laboratories, and elsewhere. In this wide-ranging and perceptive study, Lisa Kemmerer shows how spiritual writings and teachings in seven major religious traditions can help people to consider their ethical obligations towards other creatures.

    Sister Species: Women, Animals, and Social Justice.Lisa Kemmerer (ed.) - 2011 - University of Illinois Press.
    _Sister Species: Women, Animals, and Social Justice_ addresses interconnections between speciesism, sexism, racism, and homophobia, clarifying why social justice activists in the twenty-first century must challenge intersecting forms of oppression. This anthology presents bold and gripping--sometimes horrifying--personal narratives from fourteen activists who have personally explored links of oppression between humans and animals, including such exploitative enterprises as cockfighting, factory farming, vivisection, and the bushmeat trade. _Sister Species_ asks readers to rethink how they view "others," how they affect animals with their (...)

    Defending the Defenceless: Speciesism, Animal Liberation, and Consistency in Applied Ethics.Lisa A. Kemmerer - 2014 - Les ateliers de l'éthique/The Ethics Forum 9 (3):238-253.
    Lisa Kemmerer | : This article explores whether or not animal activists who engage in violence might legitimately be labelled “terrorists.” To this end, I examine common assumptions concerning the use of pre-emptive counter-violence in order to defend the comparatively defenceless. Through the use of casuistry, this essay compares specific hypothetical instances of killing comparatively defenceless individuals, beginning with scenarios that offer a clear general consensus, moving to more controversial cases. This indicates that contemporary violence on behalf of animal liberation, (...)

    In Retreat: Thich Nhat Hanh in Colorado.Lisa Kemmerer - 2007 - Contemporary Buddhism 8 (1):49-56.
    I use Thich Nhat Hanh's books in ethics courses at Montana State University to stretch the minds of my generally conservative, traditional students. When I saw that Thich Nhat Hanh was offering a retreat in Colorado, I attended. The five-day retreat allowed me to witness Thich Nhat Hanh and his community of nuns and monks in action. It also provided me with ample time to ponder the phenomenon of human belief and practice. I learned much to share with students, such (...)

  21. In Search of Consistency: Ethics and Animals.Lisa Kemmerer - 2006 - Brill.
    This volume introduces the most important ideas in animal ethics and builds on a critical dialogue emerging at the intersection of animal rights, environmental ethics, and religious studies.

In Search of Consistency sheds light on 'the sanctity of (...)

    Killing Traditions: Consistency in Applied Moral Philosophy.Lisa Kemmerer - 2004 - Ethics, Place and Environment 7 (3):151 – 171.
    This paper investigates consistency in applied moral philosophy with regard to the recent controversy over Makah whaling in the state of Washington. The first part presents both sides of the controversy. The second part examines the meaning of 'tradition' and distinguishes between 'new' and 'old' traditions. The third part explores what might constitute moral consistency for the Makah and what might constitute moral consistency for the larger community.

    In the last 30 years the bushmeat trade has led to the slaughter of nearly 90 percent of West Africa’s bonobos, perhaps our closest relatives, and has recently driven Miss Waldron’s red colobus monkey to extinction. Earth was once rich with primates, but every species—except one—is now extinct or endangered because of one primate—_Homo sapiens_. How have our economic and cultural practices pushed our cousins toward destruction? Would we care more about their fate if we knew something of their individual (...)

  35. Metamorphoses of the Zoo: Animal Encounter After Noah.Helena Pedersen, Natalie Dian, Matthew Chrulew, Jennifer Wlech, Ralph Acampora, Nicole Mazur, Koen Margodt, Lisa Kemmerer, Bernard Rollin, Randy Malamud, Chilla Bulbeck, Leesa Fawcett, Traci Warkentin, David Lulka, Gay Bradshaw & Debra Durham (eds.) - 2010 - Lexington Books.
    Metamorphoses of the Zoo marshals a unique compendium of critical interventions that envision novel modes of authentic encounter that cultivate humanity's biophilic tendencies without abusing or degrading other animals. These take the form of radical restructurings of what were formerly zoos or map out entirely new, post-zoo sites or experiences. The result is a volume that contributes to moral progress on the inter-species front and eco-psychological health for a humankind whose habitats are now mostly citified or urbanizing.
