Paper on mentions of animals in political programs presented in Tartu

On Saturday last week, May 3rd, I presented my paper "Animals Qua Sentient Beings vs. Animals Qua Resources: A Critical Reading of the Mentions of Animals in Norwegian Political Party Programs" at the Framing nature conference in Tartu (April 29 - May 3 2014). Comments on my paper focused on possible elaborations of the methodology applied.

My paper appeared in the session "Philosophy and ethics", which was chaired by Forrest Clingerman and also included presentations by Jonathan Beever and Silver Rattasepp. The session was attended by some 50 people.
