Quarterly Essay - Us and Them: Anna Krien

For the first time in history, humans sit unchallenged at the top of the food chain. To coincide with the publication of the latest Quarterly Essay, Us and Them, Anna Krien investigates the contemporary animal kingdom and our place in it. From pets to food, activists to abattoirs, wilderness to science labs, Krien takes a clear-eyed look at how we do – and should – treat animals.

Robyn Davidson is unable to chair this event due to illness; Siobhan O'Sullivan will be appearing in her place.
