Consuming Creatures: The Christian Ethics of Eating Animals
The 2020 Sydney Martin Lecture
Presented by: Professor David Clough
Wednesday 24 June, 7:30pm – 9:00pm
Delivered by videoconferencing
Professor David Clough is Professor of Theological Ethics at the University of Chester. His central concern is the place of animals in Christian theology and ethics. He has recently completed his landmark two-volume monograph On Animals (Volume I Systematic Theology 2012; Volume II Theological Ethics, 2019), and he is currently Principal Investigator on a three year AHRC-funded project on the Christian Ethics of Farmed Animal Welfare with 13 partners including major UK churches.
In 2015, David launched the CreatureKind project, which draws on his research to engage churches in the UK and North America with farmed animal welfare as a faith issue. In 2018 he launched the DefaultVeg project encouraging organizations to make a simple change to events catering policy that benefits humans, animals, and the planet. He is a Methodist Local Preacher and has served on national ecumenical working groups on the ethics of modern warfare and the theology of climate change.
