I am clearly lowering the blog production for the holidays. However, many people seem to be double-downing on blogging during the holidays. Here are some of the important things you might have missed (and always, let me know what I missed).
Here is the full program for the Animal, Vegetable, Mineral Conference.
Here is some advice for PhD students from one. I think it is fairly sound, and replicates much of a post I have been meaning to write (which was to be entitled, stuff I wish I had known).
Benoit Dillet has a review of Esposito Communitas (and to some degree Bios), here. (h/t Peter with some other links to check out).
Vegan Skeptic takes on some of the arguments that veganism is somehow worse for the environment than flesh eating (h/t vegan.com).
Richard Seymor manages to capture much of my feelings on the Assange Allegations.
Levi has had a string of interesting posts: The Domestication of Humans, with some follow-up here, a post on Uexkull (with a follow-up from Tim), and a guest post up on OOMarxism.
Adrian has a list of the books up of the decade in ecocultural theory. Remember, new blog address, reset the readers as appropriate.
It seems that, according to Google, Critical Animal is 13% Basic, 47% Intermediate, and 39% Advanced. (h/t AnPac).
Here is the Avett Brothers, performing "I and Love and You". You'll like it.
