Over the past eight months, I have posted a number of links—via Facebook and Twitter—to essays in a series hosted by the Center for Humans and Nature, revolving around a provocative question: “Does hunting make us human?”
The series, in which I was honored to participate, is of much broader scope than I ever expected.
Curated by good friends and fine scholars Mary Zeiss Stange and Jan Dizard, the collection boasts contributions by more than twenty writers, including Steve Bodio, David Stalling, Jill Carroll, Paula Young Lee, Jim Sterba, David Petersen, Eric Nuse, Ceara Donnelley, Mark Duda, Holly Heyser, Florence Shepard, and Jed Meunier.
This evening, the series culminated in a live discussion at the College of Charleston, which I would have loved to attend.
Please join me in thanking Mary, Jan, and the Center’s staff for their efforts in bringing this collection together.
And, when you have a chance, please check out the essays.
There’s a lot to chew on.
