      In Conversation with Dr. Karen Davis: Of Practical Applications of Trans-species
      Psychology, Of Demystifying Anthropomorphism, and Of The Holocaust and the

      By Vegan India!

      Some of us choose to be vegan because we feel kinship with nonhuman animals; we
      can relate empathically with them and therefore, we feel committed to unfolding
      the layers in their behavior, emotions, and language. From this drive emerges a
      body of knowledge that helps us construct their inner world. This body of
      knowledge thus accumulated, and when documented, told, and retold, becomes the
      building blocks of the discipline of "Trans-species Psychology" – the field of
      psychology that studies animal cognition and emotions.

      Today, the blog heartily welcomes Dr. Karen Davis, an animal advocate of such
      caliber. The blog had the privilege of first introducing Dr. Davis in the essay,
      [1]The Chicken Story Retold. Dr. Davis is the founder and president of United
      Poultry Concerns (UPC), a non-profit organization that promotes the
      compassionate and respectful treatment of domestic fowl in food production,
      science, education, entertainment, and human companionship situations. In the
      last three decades of her work, Dr. Davis has made enormous contributions
      towards the discipline of Trans-species Psychology. Backed by empirical research
      data, she has written volumes about the inner world of animals in her
      captivating, storytelling style. This data has been used to lobby to end animal
      exploitation, particularly of chickens, turkeys, and other domestic fowl; and to
      appeal to people to recognize their shared sentience with animals.

      Many in the USA today know her as the "chicken lady", the "chicken rights
      advocate" who changed their lives for a more enlightened and compassionate
      future.
