“Eco-Ability the Intersection of Earth, Animal, and Dis-Ability”
This special edition of JCAS will focus on intersections amongst animal liberation issues, environmentalism, ecology, dis-ability studies, and the newly forming theory, field, and movement of eco-ability. This edition, rooted in social justice, will explore these intersections of domination and exploitation to expose and dismantle interconnected oppressions. Contributors are encouraged to read and include information from Earth, Animal, and Disability Liberation: The Rise of Eco-Ability (Nocella, Duncan, Bentley, Eds.; forthcoming from Peter Lang, Fall 2012) within their final submissions. Areas for this special edition may include, but are not limited to, the following:
Interview with Vasile Stanescu graduate of Stanford University, a board member of ICAS, member of the Editorial Collective of the Journal for Critical Animal Studies, and Co-Senior Editor of the Critical Animal Studies Book Series with Rodopi Press is interviewed on the subject of the “Institute for Critical Animal Studies, North America and the Occupy Movement” on Vegan Police Radio.

In a recent New York Times article exploring the rise of the many manifestations of “animal studies” across campuses and universities nationwide, the Institute for Critical Animal Studies’ Journal for Critical Animal Studies was noted as being part of this important, growing movement in the academy. In particular, Karen L.F. Houle’s essay “Animal, Vegetable, Mineral: Ethics as Extension or Becoming? The Case of Becoming-Plant” (Volume IX, Issue 1/2, 2011) got special mention for “following in [the] word tracks” of Jacques Derrida.
The Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS) is the only animal advocacy organization in the world dedicated to higher education and is also fully-volunteer. There are more than two hundred ICAS volunteers who are around the world from professors to undergraduate students. After anyone realizes we are fully-volunteer and on a zero dollar budget people are speechless. Please watch this video of ICAS Top Ten Achievements of 2010 and donate and volunteer to ICAS, as we wish 2011 to be a huge year for ICAS and for the field of critical animal studies. Please if you cannot donate to or volunteer with ICAS, please put on a critical animal studies event at your community center, college, or university.
Special Issue: Animals and Prison
The connection between nonhuman animals and incarceration discourses has never been more intimately associated. It seems one cannot discuss animal liberation without conversing about prison, whether that be in the form of imprisoned nonhuman animals or human prisoners incarcerated for their role in liberating nonhuman animals.
