August 17, 2020, Amissville, VA • Who Chains You Books, a publisher of animal-related titles based in rural Virginia, has announced a new imprint serving the postsecondary community. WCY Humane Press will feature titles that provide new and emerging texts related to academic efforts in animal welfare and humane education classrooms at the college level.

higheredcover20lo-dropThe imprint will celebrate its birth with the release of its first title on October 1, 2020, Humane Education in Higher Education: Advancing Inclusive Social Justice Studies in a Postsecondary Environment, edited by Stephanie Itle-Clark and featuring contributions by twelve scholars of the humane and prosocial movements. The book puts forth the primary concept that “A truly humane education revolves around inclusive social justice and supports personal development of ‘critical thinking, problem solving, perspective-taking, and empathy as it relates to people, animals, the planet, and the intersections among them,’” according to editor Itle-Clark.

The volume further aims to bring truly inclusive humane pedagogy into the realm of the higher education to effectively address teaching intersectionality of social justice issues.

Who Chains You Books has been publishing for the animal community since 2016, with their current catalog featuring 70 titles available for animal lovers ranging from children’s to adult books.
