December 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

SESSION 4

Leader: Sarah Berger Richardson, Faculty of Law, McGill University
Contact: sarah.bergerrichardson@mail.mcgill.ca for location & food contributions

Reading:
Timothy Pachirat’s book Every Twelve Seconds: Industrialized Slaughter and the Politics of
Sight.

Pachirat got a job working at a slaughterhouse and the book is an ethnographic account of
his experience. Pachirat teaches Poli Sci.

Although the focus on meat production is perhaps a bit niche for our group, the broader
theme of the book is making visible aspects of our food system that are hidden in plain
sight.

Potluck prompt: people bring a dish they will present to the group in a way that makes
visible an aspect of the food that is usually equally hidden. This way the discussion can flow
from the theory provided in the book to practical application.
