As humankind moves deeper into the Anthropocene, a period marked by climate disruption, species extinction, and profound challenges to human and animal welfare, what and how we teach our children has never been of greater importance. In this passionate, incisive, and diverse collection of thirteen interconnected essays, educators at every level of education and from four continents call for a re-imagined pedagogy that embeds respect for the other-than-human world, encourages imagination and resilience, and fosters open inquiry based on principles of justice, fairness, and equity. By turns polemical, visionary, and practical, Teaching Liberation is an essential book for critical animal studies scholars, humane educators, and all those who practice pedagogy, whether in the classroom or outside it.

Agnes Trzak is an Activist-Scholar interested in all struggles against domination. She’s made a home in queer feminist antispeciesism. Her main goal is to disrupt and dismantle kyriarchy (which translates into the reign of the master), be it hidden in patriarchy, racism, ableism, speciesism or any other form of oppression.
