Dr. Taylor will be discussing her upcoming book, Disabled Ecologies: Lessons from a Wounded Desert (UC Press, 2024, link). The work "suggests that new and generative understandings of disability and nature emerge when we follow the trails of disability that are created when ecosystems are contaminated, depleted, and profoundly altered." (from Dr. Taylor's faculty page) Find out more at the book's website (link), join us to win a copy in our raffle!

Dr. Taylor's first book, Beasts of Burden: Animal and Disability Liberation (The New Press, 2017, link) "challenges utilitarian arguments for animal liberation that have traditionally pitted the rights of animals against those of disabled people. Beasts of Burden conceptualizes ableism as central to anthropocentrism, ultimately exposing not only shared genealogies of oppression, but shared paths toward liberation. Centering feminist theories of care, disability justice frameworks of interdependence, and anti-racist animal theory, Beasts of Burden offers an alternative framing of animal liberation that emphasizes entangled systems of oppressions and radical forms of solidarity."
