KIN*4097 Sport, Animals & Ethics with Dr. Gabriela Tymowski-Gionet

This seminar will explore the roles and relationships of humans and animals involved in sport, leisure and recreation, through an ethical lens. It will examine the morality of humans’ treatment of nonhuman animals in a variety of environments. The course begins with a survey of contemporary moral theories. We will examine questions about the relationships we have with animals, including the moral obligations humans may have towards animals, and the moral status of animals. We will explore the standing of animals in a myriad of environments including their involvement in pursuits such as horse and greyhound racing, ‘sport’ hunting, fighting, fly-ball, fishing, and other settings such as circuses, marine parks, shows, zoos, as well as the home.
