Animals as Legal Beings Rather than Persons or Objects: With Law Prof. Maneesha Deckha

Legal scholar Maneesha Deckha explains her novel category of "beingness" to raise the legal status of animals, in her new book "Animals as Legal Beings: Contesting Anthropocentric Legal Orders" (Univ of Toronto Press, 2021). In this 25-minute interview on In Tune to Nature, hosted by Carrie Freeman, Professor Deckha (Univ of Victoria, BC, Canada) explains how feminism, postcolonialism, and critical animal studies informs her less exclusionary and more universal notion of a legal "being" as opposed to some ideal and limiting legal notion of an independent, rational "person."

"In Tune to Nature" airs on Radio Free Georgia's 89.3FM-Atlanta and wrfg.org Wednesdays 6:30-7pm EST. Its co-hosts are Carrie Freeman, Sonia Swartz, and Melody Paris. www.facebook.com/intunetonature
